This clip was created by By Harry Mateman on his trip to Hue
Hue is an old capital of Vietnam. The Imperial City (inside the Citadel) has fine old buildings, most of them are being restored now. So to see the whole splendour you will have to wait a couple of years. But nevertheless it is worth wile to visit the Citadel now.

One of 10 gates of the Citadel
Flag tower opposite of Ngo Mon was built by Emperor Gia Long
Ngo Mon – the main gate of Imperial City
The bridge that connects Ngo Mon to Thai Hoa Palace. Thai Hoa Palace and Ngo Mon were the venues for official ceremonies.
Beyond this gate lies Hung Mieu, The Mieu, and Hien Lam Pavilion. We had too little time and energy left to proceed beyond the gate. We stopped briefly at the Royal Theater, Trieu Mieu, and Thai Mieu on our way out through Hien Nhon Gate.
