Hue is my countryside because i was born and raised up here. Due to its special location and culture, Hue isn't an ideal place for business. As a result, a lot of local people here (like me) must move to others city for working and living. Although there are not many investors choosing Hue to do business, Hue attracts many tourists in and out bound because of its beauty, peace and ancient.

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.

Thien Mu is the oldest and most well-known pagoda in Hue city. It's also situated on the north shore of the Perfume River and it's about 3km from the Citadel. Tourists can get there by boats along the river or by bikes or by motorbikes. The Thien Mu pagoda is regarded as the unofficial symbol of the former imperial capital. Today, the pagoda's home to many monks and a holy site visited by millions tourists each year.
