How to Spend 2 Days in Hue

How to Spend 2 Days in Hue

Two days in Hue gives you ample time to view the city’s historical attractions and offers a glimpse into rural life in central Vietnam. Delve deeper into Vietnamese cuisine; explore Hue countryside by motorbike; and visit the fishing communities on the banks of the Tam Giang Lagoon. Here’s how to spend two days in Hue. 

Day 1: Historical Hue

**Morning:**Your first morning is all about the ancient history of Hue. Get the inside scoop on The Citadel (Da Noi) and the Forbidden Purple City on a sightseeing tour before catching a glimpse of local life at Dong Ba Market, which hosts an array of Vietnamese produce. 

**Afternoon:**Dedicate your first afternoon to food. On a cyclo or motorbike tour, zip among street food stalls, which sell everything from noodle soup to crispy pancakes, and learn about the importance of food in Vietnamese culture. To delve even deeper, book a cooking class and take the recipes home to loved ones. 

**Night:**See Hue from a different perspective on a sunset cruise on the Perfume River (Song Huong River). Cruise options include gourmet dinners and traditional Vietnamese entertainment, and typically include convenient pickup and drop-off at your Hue hotel, to save you the stress of navigating at night. 

Day 2: Get Off The Beaten Path

**Morning:**Your second day is all about exploring further afield. Devote the morning to the imperial tombs of Hue, which are scattered throughout the countryside. Booking a tour of the tombs allows you to focus on the scenery between each and ensures you understand the significance of elaborate mausoleums designed to immortalise Vietnamese emperors such as Minh Mang and Tu Duc.  

**Afternoon:**Swap the bustling Hue for the tranquil countryside on a tour of Tam Giang Lagoon, the largest lagoon in Southeast Asia. More than 300,000 Vietnamese locals live on its shores, and sightseeing tours typically visit local villages to experience a very different way of life.

**Night:**Conclude two days in Hue by watching the sunset over the Perfume River. Then, head to Walking Street, a pedestrian zone that gives you a break from crossing Hue’s busy roads, to enjoy classic Vietnamese or international food, and shop for handcrafted souvenirs.
