* Citadel and tombs of the Nguyen Emperors

The city at the centre of so much of the country’s history and culture - the capital until 1945 - has mostly failed to make a mark on international travellers. It’s a grand failure of storytelling. Hue’s amazing stories go untold as the city offers visitors an information free, Disneyesque experience of a complicated but riveting past.
