Sailing along the Perfume River

Perfume River (Huong River) boat trip is a must-do to enjoy the quiet beauty of Hue. The Perfume River, located in the central Vietnamese province of Thua Thien Hue, is a charming and poetic river that runs through Hue Imperial City.

There are two options for each taste with various styles. You can't go along the banks of the river without seeing dragon boats passing by. The little harbor is next to the La Residence Hotel.

Option 1: In the morning, you may elect to take a sightseeing trip by hoping onto a small yet long boat. Thien Mu pagoda is the first destination, and it takes roughly 25 minutes to get there. The boat can then proceed to Minh Mang Tomb, which takes about an hour to reach. As you cruise along the river, sitting back in your seat and enjoying the cool air blowing alongside the boat while keeping an eye out for the many water buffalo on the riverside, you'll be treated to spectacular views.

Option 2: A more romantic option would be to set out late in the afternoon for a peaceful traditional huge dragon boat trip while sipping champagne at dusk. Turn around and cruise down the river under both the Phu Xuan and Truong Tien bridge after leaving the harbor and heading toward the Thien Mu Pagoda.

You can choose from a Vietnamese or Western cuisine prepared by your personal chef and wait staff. Take part in an ancient practice of lighting and releasing a candlelight lantern before returning to the hotel – a great way to immerse yourself in a time-honoured rite.
