Four Historic Churches in Hue Vietnam

Hue, Vietnam was once the capital of the Nguyen Dynasty of Vietnamese emperors. It's a small town in central Vietnam, and nowadays its big draws are the old imperial city and ancient imperial tombs. Most visitors only spend a day or two in Hue, visiting the top sites. If you have a little more time, take a walk through the town to visit these four beautiful and historic Roman Catholic churches for a different and lesser-seen side of the city.

Vietnam is a long and skinny country. This means that it can take a long time to get from one part of the country to the other. Sure, you can fly, but if you are traveling on a budget, that can get a bit expensive. Vietnam has a good and comprehensive rail network too. But if you want to save money, sooner or later you'll end up on a Vietnamese sleeper (night bus). We took the sleeper bus from Hanoi to Hue.
