Forbidden Purple City Huế

Forbidden Purple City Huế 

Hue is lavishly adorned with several magnificent palaces, temples, royal tombs and other remnants of Vietnam's rich past. Hue finds itself in the company of other former royal capitals in Southeast Asia whose incessant efforts to protect and preserve their outstanding architectural heritage and historical vestiges have made them important world heritage sites. These include Ayutthaya and Sukhothai in Thailand, Angkor in Cambodia, and Luang Prabang in Laos among others. In fact, the Forbidden Purple City, Hue based in the heart of the city is one of the prime illustrations of the rich architectural legacy of Vietnam that draws tourists by hordes.
