We would like to recommend you some tips to have a great trip in Hue.

– Clothes:

  • If you intend to visit historical sites such as Citadel or pagodas, please don’t wear shorts and tank top because the guard might not allow you to come in.

– Transport

  • Please don’t forget to ask the driver if waiting time is charged or not.
  • The white and yellow taxies will be cheaper than green ones.
  • Motorbike renting costs from 80.000vnd to 120.000vnd/ day, so please bargain if the cost is made higher.

– Food

  • If you are vegetarians, make sure that the waiters understand it clearly before ordering. In case they don’t know what you want to express, write these words on a small paper and give them: “Tôi ăn chay.”(I am vegetarian). “Tôi không ăn thịt heo” (I don’t eat pork). Or you can enjoy your meal in some vegetarian restaurants such as Lien Hoa restaurant – Le Quy Don Street
  • Don’t forget to ask for the price if it is not showed in the menu before ordering.
  • Take a chance to try special food in Hue such as Bun bo, banh beo, banh nam, banh loc, etc.

– Shopping

  • Exchange your money before shopping or starting your trip in Hue because paying by card is not common here.
  • Please count your money carefully because Vietnamese money has a lot of “0”.
  • Put your bags in front of your stomach and keep your eyes on the wallet if you go to the market to watch out for pickpockets.
  • Don’t forget to bargain if you want to buy something.
