Wonderful and exotic expereince in Hue"I didn't know before that through this trip I will be taken to UNESCO heritage sites. The Hue Citadel looks so sacred and there's a lot of past in it. Love the art that is for me a combination between Chinese and Vietnamese. Vietnam beaches are way more beautiful and pristine than I ever imagine. Through this tour, I made friends as well with a lovely Thai girl. "
