Perfume River

Perfume River

The poetic Perfume River is formed by the Ta Trach (meaning Left Tributary in English) from Truong Dong mounts and the Huu Trach (meaning Right Tributary in English), which join together in Bang Lang fork.

The river flows slowly towards 30 km long from Bang Lang to Thuan An estuary. It turns darker when it runs along the foot of Ngoc Tran mount – the Jade Cup Temple.

Along the riverside are the verdant and shady villages of Kim Long, Nguyet Bieu, Vy Da, Dong Ba, Gia Hoi, Dinh market, Nam Pho, Bao Vinh, etc. The river looks gorgeous with glittering blue limpid water at sunset. Boating on the river and listening to the folk melodies of Hue in tranquil nights make you feel peaceful.

Located on the right bank of the Perfume River, Ngu Binh Mountain is of 103 meters high above the sea level and about 4 kilometers from Hue city to the south. Two sides of the mountain have two small mountains, Ta Bat Son and Huu Bat Son. On a beautiful day, from the top of Ngu Binh Mountain, you will see the whole city with sparking palaces, moss-grown pagodas and poetic Perfume River. On the east, Thuan An beach along with East China Sea makes an impressive sight.
