Sunset Kayak on the Perfume River



Huế’s 80km (50mi) long Perfume River gets its name from the autumn flowers upriver from Huế that fall into the water, giving the river a perfume-like aroma. The placid river has been a source of inspiration for countless artists, poets, and composers. Enjoy the tranquil view of the city at dusk by kayak. Paddle downstream passing by the graceful arches of the 1899 Truong Tien Bridge designed by Gustav Eiffel and the Dong Ba Market, the largest in the province. Make a stop at Mussel Island and stroll around the village of about 600 families to observe local daily life. The island is famous for Mussel Rice, Huế’s signature dish. After exploring the island, kayak back to the pier.
