Hue

Getting there and away

Train

Hue is an express stop on the main north-south train line between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The train station is located at the eastern end of Le Loi Road, on the south bank of the river Ben Ngu. Express trains are numbered with an SE prefix, and local trains, which cost less but take a lot longer, are prefixed TN. The latter may be your only choice if your destination is not an express stop -- connecting to a local train from a nearby express stop will usually take longer than just taking the local all the way there. A dizzying array of rates are available, depending on the speed of the train, whether you're sitting or sleeping, and whether you choose a hard or soft surface to do it on. Always check availability one day in advance when possible, and arrive an half hour early for your departure. See http://www.vr.com.vn/ for pricing and timetable details.

Getting Around

Cyclos and motorbike taxis are the way to go. Unless you can make yourself invisible, they'll find you before you find them! Drivers will charge what they think they can get, so you'll have to come up with whatever price you think is reasonable. Our rule of thumb is 5,000VND for every kilometre on a motorcycle taxi on short trips, less for longer trips, and again about 5,000VND for every ten minutes in a cyclo, less if you book an entire hour.
