THE HUE CITADEL IN VIETNAM IS A MUST SEE FOR YOUR BUCKET LIST
If you follow my travels on Instagram, and take a behind the scenes glimpse into my funny anecdotes and experiences as a travel blogger on Snapchat (via ‘misterweekender’), then you will know I have been recently exploring Vietnam with My Adventure Store. For 12 days I embarked on an incredible tour of Vietnam with My Adventure Store and an amazing bunch of intrepid nomads from around the world. After a whirlwind start in Ho Chi Minh City, followed by a 17 hour overnight train to my favourite city Hoi An, and a five hour bus ride heading north through misty mountains and past the west coast of Vietnam, we finally made it to Hue.
My highlight of Hue is undoubtedly the Citadel, which translates to a city within a city protected by a fortress. Built between 1804 and 183, the Citadel is encircled by a moat with 10 fortress gates. The Citadel is huge so is a lot to explore. I highly recommend walking over to the Forbidden Purple City. While most of it has been destroyed over time due to warring, it’s this area where you will find most of the original ruins.
In fact, here are a few photos from my visit to the Hue Citadel in Vietnam – I hope you enjoy!
