New Signature Tour Takes You on Hue Discovery
In the last edition of Khiri Travel Insider, we highlighted our work on a new signature tour in Hue and featured an interview with Mr Anh, one of our top guides in this beautiful city, who talked about its identity, cultural importance and things you just wouldn’t find in the guide books. Now it is time for us at Khiri Travel Vietnam to reveal our new “Khirified” Signature Day Tour!
An ancient royal capital, the center of arts and religion, and the scene of the Battle of Hue – one of the longest and bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War – Hue is today the epitome of old-meets-new. The city is split almost in half by the Perfume River with the old town on its northern banks and its modern districts to the south.
On our new signature tour ‘Discover Hue the Authentic Way’ you will get a real taste of what life is like for the people of this fascinating destination. With our guides who are all local, you will learn about Hue through the eyes of ordinary local residents – hear their childhood stories about living through the war, their family histories, the city’s relationship with the arts, and explore locales and side streets that are often overlooked.
As with our other signature tours, our new Discover Hue tour has been designed to reveal the local stories and secrets that you just can’t find online. Although we still include some of the must-see attractions, we approach them from a different perspective and spend more time exploring other areas of the city as well. Lunch is included in a secluded spot overlooking the outer-wall of the Citadel, a delightfully local respite after a morning of discovery.
Despite being a full-day tour, the pace is relaxed and with a variety of transport options – making this a day that you just won’t forget.
