Holding an unexplainable attraction, the untamed beauty of Central Vietnam offers a long list of ideal tourism destinations for locals who grew out of the habit of celebrating the Lunar New Year (Tet) in the metropolitan areas of the north and the south.
The central city of Hue offers a wide range of historical sites, such as the Tomb of Khai Dinh, an intricate tomb especially erected for the twelfth Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty (the last ruling family of Vietnam); Dai Noi, the 19th-century citadel housing the former imperial palace and temples and the Tomb of Tu Duc, an artistic architectural complex especially built for the Nguyen Emperor Tu Duc.

Gourmets will have plenty of indulgence with flavourful local dishes, such as mussel rice (com hen), rice vermicelli soup with beef (bun bo), cold rice vermicelli dish topped with grilled pork (bun cha thit nuong), cassava cake, and Hue sweet soup.

Regarded as the best city for living in Vietnam, the coastal city of Danang offers visitors a broad spectrum of shopping highlights and historical sights within close proximity to the popular My Khe and Lang Co beaches
