Visita guiada con Ms. Nhu y Mr. Trung (conductor) excelente. Dedicamos unas 4h a visitar las 3 tumbas, una pagoda y una tiendecita local. La visita fue muy enriquecedora para conocer la historia de los diferentes emperadores de Hue y sus curiosidades. Además, intercambiamos aspectos y tradiciones culturales entre Bcn y Vietnam.
