This is maybe the most famous high school in Vietnam is not just for the stature of its graduates which include Ho Chi Minh, Vo Nguyen Giap and Pham Van Dong. I am not sure you can tour it while school is in session but taking some photos outside is worth the stop.

Visited this school with my student guide from Hue-enter whom is a ex-student graduated from the school. Through her, I am able to know exactly which building is for what purpose and she also shared her memories during her school days here. Impressive grounds with hostel and basketball court hidden from the main road. We also visited some vacant classroom... More

This place is a school with many historical events of VN. Very beautiful view with French architect building, a best relax atmosphere with lots of old trees and flowers in the yard. Very ancient and nice place.

During our stroll along the lovely riverside parkway, we spotted this complex, and decided to take a closer look... The happy and energetic students were departing for the day, and we waited until most had left, before entering the grounds ourselves. We were very impressed with the pleasing & geometric architecture, the old trees that shaded everything, and the obvious... More

The school is older then the war and it is considered an honor to be admitted. Considered a "college prep" school, it is for kids with a special aptitude. Beautiful campus, and totally worth seeing.

I knew from the guide that the school has created a lot of talented people of Vietnam. The school is red and has a lot of big trees. I like the white "ao dai" of the girl Hue.

My friend and I planned to come here before reaching Hue City because the school is quite reputable and prestigious for the gifted students. We got here in a sunny afternoon, this high school looks the same with another former French school called Hai Ba Trung high school. The architecture, red-painted wall, the serene atmosphere and the lovely little pink... More

The school looks impressive at first glance as it is quite different from the other colonial building. Its red color makes it stand out. But at second glace you realize that the while the design of the terrain is generous that buildings themselves are nothing be overly impressed by. If you happen to be in vicinity have a look at...
