The Perfume River Hue
The Perfume River (Vietnamese: Sông Hương or Hương Giang) is a river that crosses the city of Hue. Travelers coming to Hue could not miss a while of boating along the river. A visit to Hue would not be complete without a boat excursion on the gentle Perfume River, or else you cannot feel the romance of Hue. That’s amazing!
Perfume River has its name to the fact that it flows through many forests of aromatic plants before reaching Hue, bringing with it a pure and fresh aroma. The river is around 80 kilometers long; it flows through a series of beauty-spots, taking visitors to every corner of the ancient citadel when you travel by boat. Along the river, you can visit Da Vien, Phu Xuan, and Truong Tien Bridges, come to the Tomb of Minh Mang, Hon Chen Temple, Thien Mu Pagoda, and finally to bathe in the Thuan An beach. Upstream, at the Tomb of Thien Tho, you can hear the rustling of the pine tree, which may help you become a… poet!
It is an eternal pleasure for many generations of tourists who go boating to behold the poetic landscape, to listen to the folk melodies of Hue in tranquil nights.
