There are heaps of internet cafes. Going rate is generally around 3000 dong per hour.
Sinh Cafe Office
07 Nguyen Tri Phuong St., Hue
Sinh Cafe was faster than the one at our hotel, and there were heaps of travellers hanging out there -so lots of people to swap ideas/stories with!
Banh Bao (Steamed buns)
If you wish to try it, look for either a person on a bicycle which on one side of his bike is a wood fire burning, and a steamer located on top. This has the buns cooking inside.
I also saw ladies carrying them over their shoulders!
I didn't try one, even though they looked alright. My guide stopped by the pushbike (one in photo) and showed me what was cooking, certainly different!
Tomb of Minh Mang
To my mind, the most serene of all the Royal Nguyen tombs is Minh Mang - about 12 kms from Hue on the west bank of the Perfume River (and the furthest away from Hue).
Renowned for its architecture, the tomb was built between 1841 and 1843. It's a series of Chinese influenced temples, gateways, courtyards, gardens, lakes, bridges and pavillions, creating a harmonious whole.
Entrance fee is 55,000 Dong.
Hue has a very small airport that has maybe one, at most 2 runways. It shouldn't be surprising considering the small size of the city. It was a long way from town, and we couldn't see it from the road at all.
It seems to be a converted military airport, or maybe one that's dual-use. These old Russian Mi-8 helos are sitting on the runway. For a split second I had a misgiving that this was to be our ride. But luckily it was only an Airbus. Phew.
A good spot to hang out
We had a few meals here. It's also a bar so you can just have a drink. Free pool tables upstairs along with free internet. It gets pretty lively here at night. The walls are covered with traveller's graffitti. I guess they must re-paint every now & then to start again. Can't remember the name of it, but a very nice chicken & noodle dish. They also do chocolate brownies and icecream.
