Hue is the ancient capital of Vietnam. I visited Hue twice with many different emotions, but one thing never changes, the silence. Any one who visited Hue probably have had similar experiences. There seems so few people on the streets, life is passing very slow, and even a little sad. So, why go to Hue?!
Hue is the capital of Vietnam’s last feudalistic dynasty, hence preserves numerous pagodas, temples, palaces and especially the magnificent citadel. And the people of this ancient capital are amazingly wonderful too. Don’t forget the local food! Definitely worth a visit! In this article, I’m happy to share with you my experiences, tips and things to do in Hue – Vietnam.
How to get to Hue from Hanoi and Saigon?
If you’re in Hanoi or Sai Gon (Ho Chi Minh city), you can travel to Hue by bus or train. While bus is generally faster and more convenient with many high quality companies offering sleeper services, train is also a good choice for those who prefer a more peaceful trip.

The most attractive thing in South-Central of Vietnam is the long beaches with a very charming and picturesque beauty. In this post, I will share my experiences, tips and top things to do in Mui Ne – Phan Thiet to those who are planning to explore this city.
Best period to visit Mui Ne. Any time! Just avoid Jul and Aug, season of seaweeds, which makes the sea not clean and blue. Best time is Jun, with a lot of sunshine.
Assuming you are in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh city, there are two ways to go Mui Ne: by bus and train. By bus, you can get straight to Mui Ne, a little more convenient. By train, you will stop in Phan Thiet city, then go to Mui Ne from Phan Thiet, about 22km.
