  • And so you will see it at the Citadel. Is indeed a majestic and pretty looks in the Sun. The best photos at sunset.

  • Not really too much to see inside, as it is all outside. It is across from the imperial city, so very easy access 
  • In front of the gate of the Royal Palace of hue (horse gate), the Viet Nam flag had been hoisted onto the base of the three-stage. You can watch from a distance, in the Royal Palace again tell you that will arrive soon, added the elation. It does not especially tourists flocking.
