Program 1 : Hue City Tour
(Trip of 2 days & 1 night in Hue)

Brief itinerary :

Day 1 : Hue arrival. Half day city tour
Day 2 : Hue. Full day city tour

Detailed itinerary :

Day 1: ARRIVING AT PHU BAI AIRPORT. TRANSFER TO HUE/ HALF DAY CITY TOUR
Hue- Vietnam's first World Cultural Heritage site.
You will visit the Imperial Citadel- an impressive complex, first built in 17th century based on the ancient practice of geomancy. This construction stared in 1805 under the reign of Emperor Gia Long and completed in 1832 under the reign of Emperor Ming Mang. Under Nguyen Dynasty, the Kings had ordered to build ramparts, palaces and constructional works for royal. Over 200 years to now, it is still original with nearly 140 small and large constructions. By the way you visit the Dong Ba Market, famous throughout Vietnam for its conical hats.
Have lunch & dinner at local restaurant. Overnight in Hue.

Day 2 : HUE/ FULL DAY CITY TOUR
Take a boat ride on the Perfume River and visit some of the more interesting sites of Hue– Thien Mu Pagoda and the tombs of Minh Mang, Khai Dinh & Tu Duc
Thien Mu Pagoda- perched on a bluff over the river and housing some very fine gold and silver Buddha images. The Thien Mu Pagoda overlooks the Perfume River and is the official symbol of the city of Hue. Thien Mu means "elderly celestial woman", and refers   to an old legend about the founding of the pagoda.

Tomb of Minh Mang- in this opulent complex, the main buildings are arranged on an east-west axis, including a courtyard surrounded by warrior statues and several temples and pavilions. Several bridges cross two lakes before the axis ends before the vast burial mound (which is circled by a fence). The mausoleum features large gardens and lakes: a pleasant place to sit and relax.
In the afternoon you continue to visit the tombs of King Tu Duc and King Khai Dinh. The monuments were designed by the kings themselves and used as holiday retreats during their lifetime.

Tomb of Khai Dinh- dating from 1925, this is the best preserved of the lot and, while comparatively compact, quite grand at first sight. While it follows the classic formula of forecourts leading up to the tomb of the Emperor, complete with statues in attendance, architecture buffs will spot some European influences. The tomb itself is completely over the top with incredibly detailed and opulent mosaics of cavorting dragons.

Tomb of Tu Duc- Constructed from 1864 to 1867, the complex served as a second Imperial City where the Emperor went for "working vacations". Tu Duc's contemplative nature and poetic spirit is reflected in the landscape and arrangement of the 50 buildings that at one time stood here. A vast, sprawling complex set around a lake, with wooden pavilions and tombs and temples dedicated to wives and favored courtesans (Tu Duc had 104 to choose from). The courtesans' quarters are in ruins, with only outlines and crumbling walls left amid waves of overgrown grass and silence, but other areas are stunningly well-preserved. The Emperor's tomb itself, tucked away in the back, is surprisingly modest- the final courtyard is nearly empty with just a stone coffin in the middle.

Have lunch & dinner at local restaurant. End of service.

Day 2 : HOI AN- MY SON- HOI AN
Our day trip explores the World Heritage sites in Hoi An. From the 16th to 18th centuries, Hoi An was a thriving international commercial port for Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab traders. These people came primarily to trade ceramics and high-grade silk, which is still produced in the area. Today, Hoi An is a quaint riverside town, popular with tourists for its eclectic architecture, tailor shops, and numerous cafes. Some of the buildings in the narrow streets have remained unchanged for more than a century. In the morning, we spend a half-day walking through the narrow winding streets of the ancient quarter visiting Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Halls, the 200-year-old Tam Ky ancestral house, and the Japanese Bridge. In the afternoon, we take a half day trip to My Son to see its architectural treasures and sculptures of Cham culture. My Son was once the capital of the great Champa Kingdom. Originally from India, the Chams were the rulers of large areas of central Vietnam between the 2nd and 15th centuries.
Return to Hoian. Have lunch & dinner at local restaurant. End of service        .
