Tripping Around The Hue Citadel – Vietnam

Construction of the Hue Citadel began back in 1804 under the watchful eye of Emperor Gia Long who gained power in 1802. Years later, on 31 January, 1968, it was also the area that saw fierce fighting during the Vietnam War (Tet Offensive).

Today, a large team of experts, tradesmen and organizations are slowly, but surely, restoring the Citadel. It will take a long time, but the work completed to date, is AWESOME!
