Hue, Vietnam

I’ve been spending some time updating the galleries from my trip to Vietnam and Thailand in January and February, 2006. Hue was one of the highlights during our time in Vietnam. The gallery is located at Hue, Vietnam Photo Gallery, let me know what you think of the photos.

On the Northern bank of the Perfume River, this ancient capital has relics and palaces which were constructed as defensive ramparts. The construction includes more than 100 architectural works which are extremely reflective of the life of Emperors and mandarins under Nguyenâ’s reign. Situated in the middle of hills on the Southern bank of the Perfume River are the tombs of Nguyen Kings. Among these tombs are the four famous ones with the name and the arrangements of the tomb reflecting each Emperor’s points of view, personality, and tastes. These are the Gia Long tomb, Minh Mang tomb, Tu Duc tomb and the magnificent Khai Dinh tomb.
