A day in Hue.....Day 7

 Our day started with a tour of the City of Hue, our first stop was the seven storey Thien My Pagoda, next we boarded a dragon boat for a cruise down the perfume river. We then visited the Impressive Imperial Citadel which houses the Royal temple and Forbidden City.

 Lunch was the served in a beautiful, traditional Vietnamese restaurant and again consisted of seven courses. The afternoon began with a visit to the burial site of Emperor Minh Mang and Khai Dinh tomb. 

 Our final stop was at an incense and conical hat workshop in a small local village. Rob had a go at rolling an incense stick, it was real poor result that brought howls of laughter. We bid goodbye to our guide Hao and our fellow travelers as we made the drive from Hue to Hoi An. 

 We checked into the Impressive Vinh Hung Riverside resort, set in a stunning location on the river and the ladies at reception produced a birthday cake and sang happy birthday to Mandy. We just had time to stroll through the night market and then had dinner at the "Pause" cafe.
