Visit Hue Countryside
Depart from Hue to the picturesque Tam Giang Lagoon for insight into the daily life of local fishermen, including shrimp and fish farming and and net fishing. After crossing the Thuan An Bridge, visit the historic Catholic Church in Ha Uc Village which dates back to the 18th century and still has its beautiful, original steeple.
Next, explore the incredible ensemble of tombs nicknamed the "City of Ghosts" at An Bang Village. The graveyard features brilliantly coloured structures in various styles: Buddhist, Taoist, Catholic, Vietnamese, Chinese and Western, built by humble villagers with overseas funds from family members. Many of the tombs in An Bang are incredibly costly and some are even copies of the Nguyen Emperors’ tombs and the Hue Imperial Citadel. Visit the 200-year-old communal house of the Pham family, regarded by Hue scholars as the most valuable of traditional houses in the imperial city. Notice the many wood beams and pillars with exquisite woodcarvings.
Complete your exploration at the ancient Thuy Van Pagoda perched high up on a hill overlooking the Cau Hai Lagoon. Enjoy a picnic lunch before returning to Hue via the scenic countryside.
