Posted from within Vietnam.

Additional info: DEPARTURE POINT at HUE

I checked departure point at Hue by telephone after returning to Hue (10/30).

The reply of “Duc Loc” at Hue was it's not at Citadel side(i heard at Sekong) but “Phu Luong market" along NR.1 near Phu Bai airport in Hue and it’s slightly far from touristy area where there are several big hotels-Huoung Gian, Century, Saigon Morin-and many other small hotels & guesthouses (about 10km or more ?).
