Central Vietnam Trip 2024 - Day 1 - Hue City - Romance Hotel

After a long day of travelling and sightseeing, we finally arrived at our Hotel In Hue City where we would stay for a night. Very cozy 4 star hotel.
Room very clean and spacious

There's a bench to place our luggages and a study table.

Inside are bedroom slippers but they are not the disposable types. Brought my own disposable bedroom slippers for this trip. 

There's toiletries in the bathroom so no need bring own toothbrushes, etc.

Only mineral water are complimentary, the rest of beverages need to pay.

After resting for about 30 minutes, time to head out for dinner just opposite our hotel.

Central Vietnam Trip 2024 - Day 1 - Hue City - Imperial Tomb of Thieu Thi and Thien Mu Pagoda

Finally, we reached Hue City, about 2 hours away from Danang. As it was still spring time, it was a bit chilly and cold so unlike Danang which do not have four season. Our first visit was to visit the Imperial Tomb of Thieu Thi. It was the final resting place fo teh third Nguyen Emperor, it is considered a stunning forgotten beauty of Hue.

Next visit was visit to Thien Mu Pagoda but we need do take a boat to cross over to the othr side of the lake. I think is unnecessary to take the boat, the tour bus can reach the Pagoda but I guess was to give business to the boat operator.  They do some sales inside the boat.

Some shopping can be done in the boat itself.

After a mere 15 to 20 minutes crossing the lake, we arrived the pagoda.

Thien Mu Pagoda (Heavenly Lady Pagoda) - in Hue is one of the oldest and prettiest religious buildings in the country.
