In history, Hue has chosen to be the capital city by all Nguyen Lords. The royal complex of Hue has been officially recognized as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. It's situated on the northern bank of the Perfume River, with an area of 500 ha and a system of three circles of ramparts, namely from outside to inside: Kinh Thanh (Capital Citadel), Hoang Thanh (Royal Citadel) and Tu Cam Thanh (Forbidden Citadel). If you visit the Hue Citadel, it's better to hire a tourist guide in order to know everthing clearly about the place.
