Visit Hue off the beaten track with a night on board the cozy Emotion Sampan. Cruising downstream the Perfume River will bring you to unexplored villages that still keep its traditional lifestyle and architecture. Many interesting activities such as biking, walking, cooking class and blind massage are included in the cruise package. An eco-tour strictly committed to responsible tourism and a perfect way to see the real Hue.
