I have been exploring various companies for a day trip to Hue from our cruise ship, and a day trip on Halong Bay when we dock at Halong Bay. I've received quotes from Handspan travel and Asia Tourism Holiday for the Hue trip, and Paradise Travel for the Halong Bay cruise. Has anyone had experience with any of these companies?
Are there any pictures of the Cao Dai temple in Hue, and do you know the location ?

I see that the Citadel will be undergoing the largest ever restoration. Does anyone know when this is to start (the news release says "end of this year") and whether this means the Citadel will be closed to the public during certain times?
We will be in Hue in mid November. Are there any markets or stores that sell these types of dolls? I collect dolls from the counties I visit. We will be on an escorted tour, so we will not have much free time for shopping. Thanks for your help!

Thanks, DSwede for your info. I don't understand the part about going to town of Danang. If our boat arrives at Danang water port and we only have 10 hours, do you recommend going to Hue or city of Danang? Is it correct the bus ride from near Danang airport to Hue is two hours each way? How far to Danang and how do we get there? Our goal is to maximize our time as tourists. When we get off the ship at 7:00 a.m. we want to go,go,go. Thank you again.

Just wanted to get an update on the situation in Hue after the typhoon Ketsana hit it a few days ago. I've read a couple of news but it didnt really give much info so I'm hoping i can get news from those living around the area.

I amlooking for reasonable clean accomodation in HUE, currently looking at Orchid hotel, primarily based on reviews around the net, anyone stayed there recently that can confirm the posts from earlier this year and last year. Or any recommendations of better 3 star places.

Also , what's the current reasonable rate of hiring taxis cyclos, etc ?
I'll be staying at the Tha Binh 2 hotel, anyone travelled there by bus before ? and where can I take the bus from the city centre back to the airport ?
thanks much , this will make easier in case it rains, or I get too tired of
Planning a trip to Hue and was wondering if anyone can help me plan the places to visit in Hue. We are a group of 6 adults and would want to go around by ourselves so that we don't need to be rushed instead of going on a packaged tour. We will be in Hue for 2 nights then we move to Hoi Ann for another 2 nights before heading back to HCM.
Are there any not to be missed places? We are interested in historical and adventure type of activities. Do you think it is better to hire a car/van to take us around on specific places of interest? Also, are there any places between Hue and Hoi An that we can pass along when we move to Hoi An?
Your inputs will be highly appreciated!
If I rent a bike, is it OK to ride it in and around the Citadel and Forbidden City? If there are areas that are off-limits to bikes, can they be parked and locked safely somewhere? Also, I read from a guide book that one could bring a bike aboard the boats that ply the Perfume River so you could ride off to some of the temples along the banks. Is this true and feasible?
Thanks for any replies.

Hi there, I know this is a really long shot but my husband and I (Jim & Rachel Brindley) left our honeymoon cd in the CD drive room 12 at the 'Thai Bihn Hotel'10/9 Nguyen tri phuong, Hue (opposite cafe on thu wheels). We have tried calling them and emailing but think language a bit of a barrier. The Photo's are of Sikkim (north india)-written on CD. This was a while ago now but still desperately hoping! Please let us know if you are staying there or planning to. If someone can help us perhaps email pictures we will try to repay you somehow.
