  • Really interesting, I want to come back when I visit Hue again
  • Worth the visit. Beautiful and it was my first stop. You can get the combo ticket here. Tip: I think you can park along the walls of the gate near the entrance for free. There are signs across of shops advertising free parking but it's not free. I had to buy a soft drink more than double it's price.
