The next destination in my Hue trip is Thien Mu Pagoda, a place where ancient beauty, history, and spirituality converge. It's a cultural treasure that offers a profound and tranquil experience for visitors. My feelings about this pagoda are a deep appreciation for its enduring elegance and the sense of connection it provides to Vietnam's rich heritage.
Historical Significance: Thien Mu Pagoda is the oldest and most iconic religious monument in Hue. It played a significant role in the nation's history, serving as a center for Buddhism and a place of protest during the Vietnam War. The pagoda's association with the famous monk Thich Quang Duc's self-immolation in 1963 serves as a poignant reminder of the struggles for social justice and freedom in Vietnam.
Scenic Riverside Location: Perched on the banks of the Perfume River, the pagoda enjoys a stunning natural backdrop.
Spiritual Ambiance: The atmosphere at Thien Mu Pagoda is steeped in spirituality. It's a place of worship, meditation, and reflection.

In this village, you get to learn how to make sticks of incense. The incense come in various pleasant smelling scents such as cinnamon, lemongrass, jasmine and sandalwood.
This place is beautiful, as you get to see multi coloured (red, purple, yellow, green) incense bundle and it makes a perfect background for photos with some sunlight.
Don’t forget to visit this village if you are planning to visit Hue 😍
Minh Mang is the second king of Nguyen Dynasty - the last empire in Vietnam. He was best known as a strict and determined king, who ruled the country by the laws. He also had the most children in Vietnam royal history, approximately 142 babies.
The tomb reflected the lifestyle and characteristics of the King when he was alive. The architecture was symmetrical from beginning till the end, in a harmony way with nature landscapes around.

Kawara My An Onsen Resort is a must to visit when visiting the imperial city of Hue. The resort has a beautiful Japanese garden and koi pond with rooms offering a nice view of the padi fields. Great relaxation with the onsen facilities onsite. The onsen are of great standard comparable to the japanese and it was the best experience for me. You may order food delivery if you do not want to head out for meals. The hotel also offer villas if you decide to visit here in groups and they have traditional ryokans available. Staff service is great as well. Yukatas are provided in room as well.
Minh Mang - 13 kilometers away from Hue.
Is the final piece to make Hue a perfect puzzle of warmth, harmony and romance. Stop by at Minh Mang to melt into the nature full of peace.
Visiting the nicknamed "capital of street foods" and fail to eat bun bo Hue, baby basket clams rice, Hue's flat rice flour dumplings is only undermining your experiences in Hue. Make sure to spend an adequate of time and spare your stomach enough space to try as many of Hue's street food as possible. You won't regret it.
