The town of Hue has some walkable areas along the river, even some parks, which is quite good in the city that is overrun by motorbikes. The river itself is wide but otherwise unremarkable. The water does not look clean and I would not try to swim in it. We saw people fish in Perfume river though.

This was part of a Gate 1 tour. Hop on a “dragon” boat and take a short tour down river. See “Clam” island with its mounds of clam shells, from years of harvesting the clams for local favorite “clam” rice. Touring the boat around, you head up river to Thien Mu Pagoda. The owners of the boat were clever, with several tables of merch to tempt the biddies on board. You can get the same merch on the street for less so save your money. A fun little cruise on the river. Recommended

i didnt take the cruise along the river. went pass by car along the river to thien mu pagoda. therefore don't think the cruising view would be worth it.

Lovely to see land from the river. It took us over to an island where we cycled to visit the local people doing very old crafts. Purchased many items.Plenty of photo opportunities.

Plenty of photo oppotunities.

Just had to tour this area after all the hype, descriptions of the area and recommendations. Not sure if it live up to it's name but totally enjoyed the visit and the people and culture of the area. I am always amazed by the waterways of Asia and Europe.
