Temples and Imperial Tombs/寺廟與陵寢

Hue, Viet Nam, November 2, 2009

If you are interested in visiting the historical sites around Hue, signing up for a tour is not a bad idea, unless you are there to conduct an in-depth research.

When I first arrived in Hue, a motor taxi approached me, and offered me the tour for US$6. He showed me a small booket containing the references of his previous customers. One of the comments were written by a fellow Taiwanese traveler in traditional Chinese. He did enjoy the service. However, he also pointed out the price should be able to be bargained down to less than US$4.

Later, I found out the tour offered by Binh Duong I Hotel was only US$6 including boat ride, bus ride, and lunch. Consider the credibility of the hotel, this became my logical choice.

Although they claim the lunch is included in the tour, its quantity seems Vietnamese too me. Some fellow traveler ordered extra dishes on the boat. They were not thrilled by what they got. I would strongly advise packing your own lunch. The pork dompling from Pho Sai Gon and baguette sandwiches are good choices.

Make sure you bring enough Vietnamese Dong. You are responsible for your own admission. Most sites costs VND 50,000.



後來我發現Binh Duong I旅社也有提供旅遊服務。他們的是美金六元,包船、車、導遊及午餐。

雖然號稱包午餐,但我用力建議自備。他們提供的午餐大概是照越南人的飯量計算的。我那團有人自費加菜,也吃不慣。可以考慮帶Pho Sai Gon的肉包或是三明治。

The Tomb for the Last Emperor of Viet Nam/越南末代皇帝之墓

The tour guide said this tomb was quite well preserved as it used concrete, so people could not rob the building materials.
