I'm glad to hear that you've decided to spend your summer holiday in one of the ASEAN countries. So, I'd like to recommend you a wonderful place in Vietnam to you. It’s Hue, our ancient capital in the Central.
Hue was the capital of Vietnam during the Nguyen Dynasty and is one of the cultural cores or our country. The city lies on both sides of the Huong River (the Perfume River). In this ancient city can you find the palaces, pagodas and houses built on the same principles as the Forbidden Palace in Peking. Hue is also famous for its royal tombs, the tombs of the former emperors. It has been said these tombs are Hue ‘s most spectacular tourist attractions. And another fantastic attraction to tourists is the boat trip on the Huong River, especially on the moonlit nights. You can spend and enjoy the quiet and peace of the night time on the boat listening to the poetic songs of Hue’s singers. Besides these, you can also enjoy the quiet and poetic atmosphere of the garden houses of ancient architecture. Coming to Hue, you should not ignore to enjoy Hue’s specialties such "hen" rice, banh xeo (rice pancake with shrimps and herbs).
People in this old royal capital are said to be friendly and hospitable
I think you should come and visit it. I’m looking forward to hearing from you, and don't forget to send my regards to your parents.
