  • extremely interesting to visit trying to see everything and figure it out was a little difficult but got though it  more »
  • If you are in Hue, visiting the Thai Hoa Palace is a must. The complex is huge and contains beautiful buildings. The contents of the buildings may fall against, some are very bare. Booking a guide is advisable, a real order for visiting the buildings is not there.
