Imperial Hue named as one of five must-go destinations in SE Asia

The former imperial capital of Hue in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue is among the five must-go destinations in Southeast Asia listed by the Discovery DCODE (discoverydcode.com) TV channel.

Imperial Hue was the seat of the 13th Nguyen Dynasty which ruled the country from 1802 until the end of the feudal era in 1945.

Located on Vietnam’s central coast, Hue City proceeds at a leisurely pace unlike Hanoi and HCM City.

It is home to the glories of Vietnam’s feudal past with its Imperial Citadel and royal tombs that have made it a top tourist destination for years.

In the first 11 months of the year, more than four million tourists visited Thua Thien-Hue province, up 19.7 percent from a year ago, including 1.73 million foreigners.

Visitors from the Republic of Korea made up the largest group, accounting for one third of the foreign visitors.

The four other regional destinations on the list are Hsipaw in Myanmar, Camiguin in the Philippines, Sihanoukville in Cambodia, and Nan in Thailand.
