Festivals and food In Hue -- Eating
Festivals are a Hue attraction. There are two main kinds of festival here. Royal festivals reflect the life and ritual activities of the Nguyen dynasty. Folk festivals consist of many activities such as Hue Nam festival in Hon Chen temple.
Hue's cuisine is rich, but one of the most striking differences is the prominence of vegetarianism in the city. Several all-vegetarian restaurants are scattered in various corners of the city to serve the locals who have a strong tradition of eating vegetarian twice a month, as part of their Buddhist beliefs.
You can take a cruise along the Perfume River, eating some local cuisine, and listening to Nha Nhac Royal Music - one of the best ways to enjoy views of this classical, mysterious city!
