All about the trip
Experience a dragon boat trip on the Perfume River and tour intriguing sights of the ancient imperial city of Huế. Enjoy amazing views of the scenic landscape and the river banks dotted with historical monuments.
After boarding a dragon boat with a beautiful dragon decorated in all colors we set off on our trip along the Perfume River.
The river got its name because it carries the scent of flowers fallen to the stream from trees growing upriver. It crosses the city of Huế and numerous sights are located on its banks.
On our first stop we climb a few stairs leading from the boat to the historical temple of Thiên Mụ Pagoda. In its walled compoud it houses a 7-storey stupa inside a peaceful garden which became an icon of the city.
Next we stop at the lovely Hon Chen temple. It is a smaller temple but with a unique atmosphere and charm.
Our last stop is King Minh Mang’s tomb which is a large burial site comprising of 40 monuments. Together with ponds and pine trees they create an ambience for quiet reflection.
If you choose an afternoon tour you will be rewarded by a beautiful sight of the sun setting over the Perfume River.What Wikipedia Says
