With splendid emperors’ tombs, ancient pagodas and the remains of the Citadel, the city retains its royal charm. Start your cyclo trip by crossing the Perfume River on the Trang Tien Bridge. Then ride along the famous Dong Ba Market and follow a branch of the Perfume River to an area surrounding the Citadel where local people have lived for generations in their old style houses. While sitting on the cyclo, all of the activities on the street, in the shops and in the houses, just happen around you, and you feel like you are a part of the scene. After the cyclo ride, walking to the Imperial Citadel from the Noon Gate will provide great balance and you will appreciate the magnificent architecture and gardens while your guide explains about the events and the intrigue of the former royal court. Despite being bombed heavily, there are some incredibly well preserved sections still intact and others which are being lovingly restored.
