Hue is central Vietnam was the seat of Nguyen Dynasty emperors and the national capital from 1802-1945.
It is home to a massive royal citadel called the Forbidden Purple City, which admittedly sounds more interesting than the actual war-ravaged site.
For travelers who love visiting heritage sites, a more tempting incentive to visit Hue are exquisite imperial tombs scattered around the outskirts of the city.
