Hue Prices & Travel Costs

Last Updated: Jan 2022

Hue is unusual in the sense that the city center is remarkably plain and mostly free of attractions, with the exception of the less-than-spectacular citadel that dominates the area north of the Perfume River. Most of the things to see are pagodas, temples, and craft centers that are best reached on a river cruise combined with a bus ride, and thankfully those are quite cheap.
