Everyday at 6 p.m. two pavilions in the front of the Hue Citadel, Nghinh Luong Dinh and Phu Van Lau, are lit up. The LED lighting makes them glow gorgeously. The citadel, a UNESCO heritage site, was home to the Nguyen Dynasty, Vietnam's last royal family (1802-1945).
Le Duan Street located between Phu Van Lau and Nghinh Luong Dinh glows beautifully at night.
The historical monuments in the ancient town give off an old and mysterious vibe.
The Flag Tower (Ky Dai) in front of the Hue Citadel was built in 1807 during the reign of King Gia Long. Two years ago it was installed with a new LED lighting system. The Hue government has revived the salute, firing four shots at 8:30 p.m. every Sunday, and 21 shots on Lunar New Year Eve or other special occasions like foreign national leaders' visits.
Truong Tien Bridge over the Huong (Perfume) River glitters at night thanks to an LED light system installed at a cost of 430,000 USD. The bridge was built during the reign of Emperor Thanh Thai (reigning 1889-1907) and had many different names before it finally became Truong Tien
Many tourists and locals like to visit Truong Tien Bridge, a symbol of Hue, glows violet as this color is often mentioned as a feature of Hue's beauty. Hue is well-known for images of women in violet traditional dress, ao dai.
