A Cultural Hue

By Linda Tancs

Located in central Vietnam on the banks of the Perfume River, Huế is the country’s cultural heart, its complex of monuments earning recognition from UNESCO.  Once the seat of a feudal dynasty, that status is preserved at the Citadel, a walled forbidden city reserved for emperors, concubines and loyal attendants.  The ancient emperors’ tombs are scattered along the river’s banks.  Nearby is Thien Mu Pagoda, the tallest in Vietnam and a testimonial to the city’s imperial past.
