Good composition, using the trees to frame the citadel. Where are the tourists? It's rare to find this place without visitors.

Thank you JNguyen. This gate actually just allows people to go one direction, from inside out only. Moreover, the shot was taken about 11 AM, it was just too hot for visitors to walk around I guess.

Ahh, it breaks my heart these days to see photos of Vietnam and think it's now over two years since I visited. Such a wonderful, wonderful place.

Hue is my favorite part of Vietnam...I went there in 2009 as my wife is Vietnamese and her mother's family is from Hue. The country side and the beaches there are just beautiful and the cuisine from there is the best in all Vietnam... I will never forget the feeling of riding a moped alongside the perfume river and stopping at one of the many roadside stands for a cold glass of fresh nuoc mia!
