Hue motorbike full day





Hue motorbike tourA great way to get off the beaten track & see Vietnam in close-up. It is also the only way the locals get about as a car is too expensive to purchase! A visit to Vietnam would not be complete without spending some time in this great Ancient City, and there is no better way to see it's sites than taking a Hue City Tour by Motorbike
Active Travel Vietnam know the city inside out and will ensure that you have a fantastic day and your interests are covered, be it the majestic tombs of the rulers of the Nguyen Dynasty, Ho Chi Minh's childhood home and village, visiting a temple while Buddhist Monks are at prayer, exploring rice fields and local villages, or making your own incence...


Tour highlights:
• Motobike ride through countryside and rural villages
• Visit Emperors' toms and Forbidden Purple citadel
• Enjoy vegetarian lunch with nuns in a monastery.
• Dragon boat cruise on Perfume river…



Please note that all guides carry helmets which can be used, and the top speed ever gained is no more than 25km/h.

Begin by departing the hotel by 08.00am and the first stop is on the Vi Da hamlet for a great view of the river, and photo opportunity. Then head out of the city and through the rice paddies and countryside. There are many things to see including the Thanh Toan Old Covered Bridge; the Ho Quyen Tiger's Arena (where the elephants & tigers used to fight and the elephants always won!), visit some of the local cottage industries such as incense making and conical hat making. We are going to visit the Forbidden Purple city and the Kings' tombs, the eclectic and mesmerizing tombs and mausoleums of the last emperors of Vietnam reveal fascinating insights into the lives of the imperial families and their subjects. The ancient citadel reflects the pomp and ceremony of the dynastic rulers, as well as the scars of many years of turmoil, both ancient and modern (the Royal Citadel was badly damaged in the latter stages of the war). Even so, it retains a sense of grace and majesty even today.

After the Royal citadel we head up to the military bunker on the top of the hill for a great view of the Perfume River. At 11am you may be lucky enough to get to a monastery and hear the monks chanting. Lunch is usually either in a monastery or a convent. The nuns are super friendly at the convent, and the meal - a fully vegetarian buffet - is usually one of the client's trip highlights. After lunch, you will head to one of the Emperor's Tombs and then catch the private boat to Thien Mu Pagoda, we ride pass Hon Chen temple, King Minh Mang's tomb and admire the beautiful landscapes and the sunset on the way back

We usually get back around 4pm or maybe earlier
