This gate is more than merely one of the ten entrances to the Imperial City; it was also the site of political announcements and decrees.

Without a doubt, many of the prettiest existing structures at the Imperial City are the walls and various gates. A lot of the insides are missing, so if you're not up for a visit of the Imperial city on a hot day, you can take...More

This is the place to take photos. The sheer beauty of the Imperial City needs time to enjoy it. They even have a shop inside where you can purchase cold drinks and even an ice-cream. Take a guide with you.

The main Southern gate way into The Citadel. Lots of lovers, honeymooners and schoolkids taking selfies. Go into the Citadel proper and don't waste too much time hanging out here.

The enormous walls can be identified as bulwark already from the distance. As closer you come as more impressive it becomes. It's the starting point for each tour through the Citadelle and Royal Palace.

This is the Main Gate (at the southern side, towards the river and Flag Tower) of the Imperial Citadel in Hué, where you purchase your entrance tickets (150,000VND adults, 30,000 for children). A very imposingly beautiful old structure over a moat.

This gate is the main gate. There is a big yellow door in the centre and this is only ever opened to let the King through. Doors to sides were for elephants and horses. This is an impressive entrance way right by the big flag...More

This gate is part of the Imperial Palace which is vast area with imperial buildings functioning in service only to the emperor. It is good to visit the whole complex not only the gate.

When we crossed the bridge, looking for the citadel, we thought it would be obvious which way to go, but it wasn't. There were no signs, saying, "Entrance this way", and there were the predictable annoying cyclo drivers who were ready to mislead us. One...More
