Stop At: Hue Imperial City (The Citadel), Hue Vietnam
During the period of Nguyen Lords, Hue was chosen as the capital of Southern Viet Nam (Dang Trong). The Lords Nguyen Phuc Lan and Nguyen Phuc Tan established a chief town in Kim Long between 1635 and 1687; Lords Nguyen Phuc Thai and Nguyen Phuc Khoat moved it to Phu Xuan in 1687-1712 and 1739-1774. Hue had been the capital of Quang Trung Nguyen Hue king-Tay Son period, and then became the capital of the united Vietnam when Nguyen Phuc Anh ascended the throne starting Nguyen dynasty which lasted 143 years. With its history closely connected with nine Nguyen Lords who were ancestors of later Nguyen emperors, it is understandable that Emperor Gia Long selected land lying in the middle of the country to build the Citadel for the Nguyen dynasty.
