Hue’s garden houses, which harmoniously blend the calculation of human architecture with the randomness of nature, are unique expression of the cultural values of Vietnam’s former imperial city.
They are unique features of Hue. The houses are traditional, privately owned, and set in attractive formal gardens. Some have connections with the old Royal Imperial Court. Hue traditional architecture has long been close associated with the natural environment.
This tour will give you an overview of an original royal architecture. The interaction with the owner of the Garden House will provide an in-depth insight into the culture and history of this former Royal land.
You will be greeted by 4U Tours guide at hotel lobby and drive to An Hien Garden House, situated 30 minutes out of town and originally the residence of Emperor Duc Duc’s 18th daughter.
Another classic example of a garden house is the former home of Princess Ngoc Son, a classic structure with three bays and two wings. The highlight is a small artificial rock garden.
