We visited Hue together with our tour guide Hoa who was really amazing. We were a group of 4 which was so cool, because we got to talk to each other and ask many questions. Hoa would talk about the sights first (especially the history background) and let us discover them on our own afterwards. He was open to all of our questions which we really appreciated since he also talked about some present issues. The tour was worth every Dong, thank you Hoa!
