Hue is approximately 3.5 hours by bus from Da Nang. Visit Thien Mu Pagoda and tour the Palace of Supreme Harmony, which has been restored to its full original grandeur. The Forbidden Purple City was reserved for the private life of the Emperors, where 13 of them ruled from Hue between 1802 and 1945.
8 hour tour but 4+ hours of that was in a bus. Areas we toured were very good and interesting. Just felt the boat docking area was again too far from touring area.
