Probably most known now for the dish Bún bò Huế, it's meant to be great for food but I found it difficult to track down any really good local food. All the restaurants were for tourists and all served a similar menu. I'm sure great food exists there but it just wasn't as easy to find as other places.
Perhaps the biggest attraction in the Imperial Palace which is a nice way to spend an afternoon but I didn't think it was anything too special. It rained almost constantly during my stay but I still enjoyed my time here. However, if you're pushed for time, I think there are many better places to visit instead.
Khách Sạn Minh Hiếu
220,000d per night for single room. Really nice room though!
Nightlife, bars & cafés
Brown Eyes Bar
Urgh! It was pretty horrible in there. We only lasted a minute or two. It seems like it's the most popular club (or maybe the only one) in town. Only go if you're desperate and/or already very drunk.
Sights & Activities
Hue Royal Palace
Probably the biggest tourist site in Huế. We were pushed for time and pretty tired so probably didn't give it a chance but it wasn't anything special. It's also likely that I've seen so many old buildings that they have to be something very different to impress me.
Thuy Tien Lake
Famous abandoned water park.
