What to do in Hue
Hue is located near the historical border of North and South Vietnam. This border, also called the DMZ, was established during the Vietnam War. The main attraction is the Citadel. You can walk around for several hours and get to know the history of this Imperial city. If you are not that interested in history, we think you can better spend your time at other destinations in Vietnam.
We recommend to stay in Hue only as a stopover for the High Van Pass. The High Van (Mountain) Pass is a scenic and easy to ride road along the coast between Hue and DaNang. It is one of the greatest ocean roads in the world and often referred to as the Great Ocean Road of Vietnam.
It is very easy to arrange an ‘easy rider’ motorbike tour. You can rent a motorbike (with or without a guide) and drive to Hoi An. The rental company takes care of your luggage and transports your backpacks with their van to Hue.
Are you thinking about driving a bike in Vietnam? Then, this is the part where you should do it. Great stops along this road are the Elephant rock and Marble mountains. In case you are too scared to drive a bike or never drove one before, you can also join at the backseat of the motorbike of a guide. The alternative is to take the train. The railway follows the same route so you can still catch a glimpse of this beautiful view.
