Photographer's Note

HUE was the capital of Đàng Trong Kingdom from 1738 to 1775 and of the Nguyen Dynasty from 1802 to 1945. Its major attraction here is its vast, 19th-century citadel. The grounds of this "Imperial City" are protected by fortified ramparts 2 kilometers by 2 kilometers, and ringed by a moat.

The Forbidden City is vast and you can spend hours wandering around inside.
We enjoyed exploring the many quiet corners of serenity.

---

THIS PICTURE shows one of those quiet corners. You might recognize the typical yellow paint, the dragons on the roof and the long-life symbolism in the blue windows.
