Hue n HoiAn- Vietnam

Hue and Hoi An are two charming towns on Vietnam's central coast. Hue, former capital city of the Nguyen Empire, has an old walled city, Imperial Palace, Royal Tombs, and traditional Vietnamese life to immerse yourself in. Hoi An, a major port on the old Asian trading route, is an atmospheric town full of restored shophouses, boutiques, and quaint restaurants. Nearby is a long, sweeping beach on the South China Sea. Both towns also support rivers and canals full of bustling water-side activities. Here are snapshots from my visit.
