Perfume River, Hue

#1 of 11 in Parks in Hue
Water Body · Nature / Park
Fragrant flowers from nearby orchards drop into the gently streaming water of Perfume River, giving it a specific aroma and a peculiar name. The meandering river originates in the Truong Dong Mountains and runs very slowly for 30 km (18.6 mi), until it darkens, deepens, and hastens near the Ngoc Tran Mountain. Go on a boat excursion to observe the surrounding villages and colorful natural wonders. Some boaters may insist on selling you their wares and souvenirs, so either prepare to bargain, or kindly refuse their persistent offers.

  • What a lovely river, the Perfume river is. We walked along this river for a while and took in the beauty. It is a wide river which we saw a few times while in Hue.  more »
  • Romantic river. But too much people ask for boat trip! This out of control
  • Makes a big difference to Hue. Pleasant park embankment walks and bridges over to view the river by foot and to keep away from the prolific amount of scooter which even find their way on PARTS of the embankment.
