Hué Walk of Revolution | Vietnam during French and American War

The Deluxe Hué Walk of Revolution is a small group Hue half day walking tour specifically designed for travelers seeking a deeper understanding of Hue city during the two Indochina Wars: The French War and American War with an Expert Guide from Hue.

Wars are what most visitors know about Vietnam. The most notable ones to mention are the 100-year France colonization and 20 years of fighting and bombardment heavily by America.

Even suffering much destruction and loss, the Vietnamese with such forgiveness and kindness, almost forgot war just ended only 40 years ago. However, learning about how the two Indochina Wars started from the remained relics in Hue is interesting to many curious travelers. The Deluxe Hue Walk of Revolution is the best tour in Hue for you. Moreover, learning history by foot is the best thing to do in the imperial city of Hue.

Itinerary

08:30The Struggling Of An Nam under France

Your Hue Revolution walk will start with an introduction of Vietnam in the beginning of France colonization. The Nguyen Empire failed to protect the country’s sovereignty while the greed of the West for new market gradually swallowed the East.

Have you heard of the body tax policy France applied to An Nam? Our English Speaking Expert Guide will deliver a fun and interesting introduction to Vietnam revolution at this point.

Truong Tien Walking Tour

09:30The Vietnam War in Hue

Part two of your half day walking tour in Hue will dig deeper in the Vietnam War, a controversial topic that many Vietnamese and oversea folks still argue about. Our group will visit the Thanh Tu Dao Memorial in Hue Center to learn about the opening of Vietnam War and the Vietnam division in DMZ area.

An incident in the summer of 1963 that most people did not talk about is the Buddhist Crisis in Hue under Ngo Dinh Diem reign. What was the role of Hue in this picture and how it ended in 1963? A short but fascinating presentation of Vietnam War starting point will be pictured for you at this site.

Finally, with visual documents, our guide will help to explain what happened in Hue during the most famous Battle of Hue, the Tet Offensive. With the witness of the iconic Truong Tien, you will understand how much the imperial city of Hue had revived after that battle.

10:30The Hue Local Way of Life

Walking on the historic Truong Tien bridge, we will do a fun walking tour through Dong Ba Market. Our change of topic will be around local way of life and a chance for you to experience one of the best local Hue food in this walking tour.

All wars had finally ended for the Vietnamese. However, Hue still houses many ruins recorded the journey of Hue from Champa civilization till The Vietnam War in its famous museum of Thua Thien Hue history.

In this walking route in Hue, our expert guide will show you great artifacts from 2000 years ago to the map of Tet Offensive. All is to sum up Vietnam history at this point.

This will guarantee an extremely rich experience that you can learn nowhere else in Vietnam.

11:00The Flag of Freedom

We end the Hue Walk of Revolution Tour in front of Ky Dai Bastion, another witness of wars in Hue. It withstood important changes in Vietnam revolution in 1968 and finally 1975. Wonder what they were?

Why we had this special Hue Walking Tour for you?

1. Deluxe and Standard Hue Walk of Revolution, which one to choose? 

We offer two levels of depths. While with the deluxe tour, we focus on more of the Buddhist Crisis in Hue and what happened in Hue during the Tet Offensive, the standard option is great for travelers who want to understand generally struggling start and victorious ending of Vietnam revolution in the two Indochina Wars.

2. Hue walking area

Hué Walk of Revolution is unlike any other daily tours in Hue. We will be walking to unnoticeable memorials in Hue that have unique links to Vietnam revolution. Its total walking distance is about 2,1 kilometers from the “French Boulevard” over the iconic Truong Tien bridge, Dong Ba market and to the Hue Citadel. 

Please note there is a small walking tour of Hue Citadel, however, we won’t take you inside the Hue Imperial City. If you wish to visit this most important Hue attraction, you might want to do more of the Hue Walk of Imperial City Tour.

5. Make the most of your learning experience

  • Choose the Deluxe Tour: While most tourists prefer to do what we call “the sheep tour”, this special walk is great for those who’d like to break from the crowd and eagerly learn the most intriguing chapter of Vietnam history with open hearts. Also, our donation to these memorials is small, yet, meaningful enough for our government to pay attention to them. Yes, our history is sad but so beautifully patriotic that we dream of educating everyone about the lesson of resilience and forgiveness of the nation called “Vietnam”.
  • Plan and read ahead: please book ahead of time, however, for urgent tour, give us a shout in the live chat. Your trip is more meaningful with a local friend to explain details and tell your meaningful stories of the Hue unique war stories.

Interesting Revolution tour with the sweet and helpful Bem!
Bem guided my boyfriend and I around the city, entertaining us with lots of interesting history tid-bits and the revolutions of Hue in the past. We had lots of questions and Bem was very happy to answer them all! We found it really interesting and it was so wonderful to have Bem all to ourselves. Not sure if that always happens, but it was definitely a bonus.
