Travel far away from the bustling cities of Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi and explore the beautiful countryside of Vietnam. Take a relaxing trip to the rurals on your way to the glorious citadels of Hue (pronounced as 'hway') and the mysterious Phong Nha Cave. Depart for Hue via Hai Van tunnel and enjoy the gorgeous transition of the eclectic city to the amazing natural landscapes on your way to the former Vietnamese capital. Arrive in the city and discover the illustrious spectacle that is the Perfume River on a restful dragon boat ride passing by cultural landmarks such as the Thien Mu Pagoda. Other main attractions like the Imperial Forbidden Citadel, Noon Gate, Yin and Yang Palace, Duyet Thi Duong Old Theater, Grand Ancient Temple, Longevity Palace, Nine Dynastic Urns, and the Hien Lam Pavilion are situated nearby for your ease of visit and personal discovery of each hallmark. Afterwards, you will be taken for a sumptuous lunch of authentic Vietnamese dishes before checking in to your hotel accommodation in the city. Continue the journey with a visit to the tomb of Tự Đức – Nguyen Dynasty's 4th emperor – a grand chamber divided into a Temple Area and Tomb Area. However, the remains of the great emperor was not buried here but in a secret location somewhere else in the city, which no one really knows in this day and age. Next, you will explore Dong Ba Market, the oldest local market in town. End the first day with a delicious dinner at dusk. On the second day, head towards the enigmatic Phong Nha Cave. Take a relaxing cruise on the Son River on your way to the legendary wet cave. The tour ends with a hearty lunch of Vietnamese cuisine before going back to Da Nang.
