Perfume River Reviews & Ratings

  • Took the Dragon boat from City center to the Thein Mu Pagoda. You pass the Citadel and beautiful riverside parks. Women set up shop on the boat to sell all kinds of stuff. very relaxing.

  • Perfume River spans approximately 80 kilometres in length, flowing from Truong Son Mountain through Hue City Centre and Bang Lang Fork. The river was given its name over 100 years ago, due to the scent of flowers that dropped in the water from upriver orchards. As the strong floral scent was carried through the river during autumnal months, it resulted in locals naming it as Perfume River. Today, it may not smell as fragrant due to modernisation and the increasing number of riverboats but it’s still one of the most popular landmarks in Hue. The waterfront gets very lively in the evening. Local youths often flock to the park to enjoy breathtaking sunset views of Perfume River. The Trang Tien Bridge (Cau Truong Tien) also becomes illuminated with colourful LED lights, resulting in an impressive sight.

  • Romantic river. But too much people ask for boat trip! This out of control

  • Makes a big difference to Hue. Pleasant park embankment walks and bridges over to view the river by foot and to keep away from the prolific amount of scooter which even find their way on PARTS of the embankment.

  • Beautiful river. You can tell it means a lot to the locals. Worth an explore!
