This is Hue it is!

Recently I have been wondering that either we pick our destinations really well or that UNESCO hands out World Heritage Site certificates easily because we seem to visit one every week. I would like to think it’s the former!

So, out of the blaring horns and mild climate of Hanoi we took a night train south to the historic city of Hue which was the region’s capital a few hundred years ago. The city is quite compact really with the ancient citadel on one side of the Perfume River and the modern city with dozens of hotels and restaurants on the other. Quite a pleasant little place and the citadel really is worth a look if you are into history or local architecture.

Hue is also famous for it’s local cuisine which we sampled at a traditional restaurant. Several different styles of rice pancakes stuffed or sprinkled with pork or prawn then dipped into the sweet lime dressing before chopsticking into your mouth. Very nice but couldn’t beat the food in Hanoi which was exceptional!
