Hué is the old capital of Vietnam (in the time of the old kings). It has many temples, pagodas and a citadelle. I had a really nice Couchsurfing host, Cong, who let me stay at his place for 4 nights and showed me around a lot of nice and interesting places in Hué.

  • Thien Mu pagoda

  • Thanh Toan Tile

A friend of Cong, Na, showed me her parents village. It was an unique experience, I learned how to cook traditional vietnamese food and how it is to live without any electricity. Originally I wanted to stay in that village over night, but sadly at around 8 o'clock in the evening, a representant of the government asked me to go back to the city as I'm not allowed to stay in that village. So we drove back to the city by motorbike, on the way back we had to cross a very dangerous bridge (main raids in the night) for the sake of my own safety. I guess some countries have even stranger laws than Germany :)
