Central Vietnam seems to be the modest in size, but it is a symbol of the long history of the country. Reflecting the greatness of the ancient culture, this area has no less than three World Heritage Sites recognized by UNESCO (the city of Hue, Hoi An old town and My Son holy land).
Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam, World Heritage of Humanity, is revealed as an architectural poem. It will tell you the history of its kings, after 143 years of rule, have left a legacy of vast imperial city and many sacred tombs scattered along the fabled Perfume River. Time, nature and man have damaged the citadel, in which the imperial walls and the Forbidden Purple City were not protected from wars, typhoons and fires. But the stones scattered among the weeds are inspiring the visitor's imagination. By conducting renovations and reconstructions, people are trying to restore the puzzle imperial influenced by the pékinoise.Il architecture style, creating sleaziness for Hue's streets. This serenity can be found in the Heavenly Lady Pagoda, whose high octagonal tower would allow it to participate in the contest of the most beautiful monuments of Asia, or when we find houses with gardens with the deafening concert of cicadas. Some of these houses are home to tasty restaurants.
Direct to the south is the Danang city. The road between Hue and Danang is simply splendid. Along the Sea of Da Nang, between the beaches and the railway, the road passes through beautiful landscapes and lagoons.
Finally, the ancient port of Hoi An fascinates you with its charm. This charming coastal town boasts a beautiful wooden architecture which makes it a World Heritage Site recognized by UNESCO. Hoi An is indeed a remarkably well preserved city which used to be a trading port in Southeast Asia, from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century.
