My favorite site in Hue are Tombs of the Emperors (Imperial Tombs of the Nguyen Dynasty), especially Imperial Tomb of Khai Dinh. First, the site is lovely located. Second, I like their miniature, wooden versions you can buy as souvenirs. 馃檪
How do you like them?

Moim ulubionym miejscem w Hue s膮 grobowce w艂adc贸w z dynastii Nguyen. S膮 one pi臋knie usytuowane, a poszczeg贸lne rze藕by cz臋sto mo偶na kupi膰 w formie drewnianych figurek jako pami膮tki z Wietnamu. 馃檪
Jak Wam si臋 podobaj膮?

Vietnam – Religion

I used to thought about Vietnam as a Buddhist country, however only about 16% of the total population are practicing Buddhists. About 8% are Christians. Many Vietnamese aren’t religious and also many Vietnamese adhere to indigenous religions (Vietnamese folk religion). Vietnamese folk religion is not an organized religious system, but a set of local worship traditions, apparently with many similarities to the southern Chinese folk religion. What’s interesting, the Vietnamese indigenous religion is sometimes identified as Confucianism because it carries values that were emphasized by Confucius.

Zanim pojecha艂am do Wietnamu, wydawa艂o mi si臋, 偶e jest to kraj buddyjski. Jednak tylko 16% Wietnamczyk贸w praktykuje buddyzm. Oko艂o 8% to katolicy, a pozostali albo nie wyznaj膮 偶adnej religii albo wierz膮 w rozmaite b贸stwa (system lokalnych wierze艅 czasami uto偶samiany z Konfucjanizmem).

Vietnam – Perfume River

Hue, Vietnam

It’s very popular in Hue to take a boat trip on the Perfume River in a typical boat that you see in today’s picture. It’s a nice, relaxing trip. And in general, water is important in Vietnam so it’s a good idea to take at least one boat excursion, and Hue is a good place to do so.

The name “Perfume River” originate from a scent of flowers, however it can be smelled only in a short time in autumn.

Jedn膮 z turystycznych atrakcji w Hue jest rejs po rzece Perfumowej w typowej 艂贸dce widocznej na dzisiejszym zdj臋ciu. W trakcie tej kr贸tkiej wycieczki mo偶emy z innej perspektywy przyjrze膰 si臋 r贸偶nym ciekawym zak膮tkom Hue.

Nazwa Rzeka Perfumowa pochodzi od zapachu kwiat贸w, kt贸rymi ona przesi膮ka; jednak mo偶na tego do艣wiadczy膰 tylko w kr贸tkim okresie jesieni膮.

Vietnam – Hue

And now it’s time for a few travel impressions from Hue.
Hue (Hu岷) is a city in central Vietnam, that used to be a capital of Vietnam for almost 150 year. It is well known for its historic monuments, which were listed in UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.
You’ll find many attractions in Hue, e.g., Tombs of several emperors, Royal Citadel, Forbidden City, Thien Mu Pagoda, etc.

__________________________________________________________

I nadszed艂 czas na kolejne wietnamskie miasto na moim blogu. Tym razem przenie艣my si臋 do Hue.
Hue (Hu岷) mo偶e nie jest tak znane jak Hanoi, ale zdecydowanie zas艂uguje na s艂aw臋. 馃檪
Hue by艂o stolic膮 Wietnamu przez prawie 150 lat i obfituje w ciekawe, historyczne miejsca (m.in. cytadela, zakazane miasto), kt贸re znajduj膮 si臋 na Li艣cie 艢wiatowego Dziedzictwa UNESCO – zdecydowanie polecam odwiedzi膰!

Vietnam – Souvenirs

Today, the last picture from Hoian in Vietnam. Well, it could be taken anywhere… But Hoian is a perfect place for buying souvenirs, if you only like to bring some from your trips.
You’ll find in Hoian lots of different items, some of them may be quite useful like these colorful bowls, the other are just decorations, but very nice and of a good price. 馃檪

__________________________________________________________

Dzisiaj ju偶 ostatnie zdj臋cie z miasta Hoian w Wietnamie. To zdj臋cie mog艂oby by膰 wykonane tak偶e w innych miastach, jednak to Hoian jest idealnym miejscem do kupowania pami膮tek. Je偶eli lubicie przywozi膰 pami膮tki z podr贸偶y, w Hoian na pewno znajdziecie co艣 ciekawego, od typowych dekoracji do u偶ytecznych kolorowych miseczek ze zdj臋cia. 馃檪

Vietnam – Market in Hoian

In Asia, it’s basically an experience to visit different markets. I already showed you pictures from the colorful Coc Ly market. Today, I want to show you a fresh market in Hoian. You don’t have to buy there anything, just walk around and check what kind of specialities people sell. Maybe you remember, a few days ago I said that food in Vietnam is part of culture and tradition, moreover fresh markets in Vietnam are very interesting. 馃檪

__________________________________________________________

B臋d膮c w Azji koniecznie trzeba odwiedzi膰 r贸偶ne targi/rynki. S膮 one cz臋sto bardzo wyj膮tkowe, kolorowe, pe艂ne ciekawych zapach贸w i smak贸w. Wcze艣niej pokaza艂am Wam targ w Coc Ly, a dzisiaj jeden z rynk贸w w Hoian. Odwiedzenie takiego miejsca to zawsze do艣wiadczenie samo w sobie. Nie trzeba nic kupowa膰, ale warto podejrze膰 co ciekawego jest na sprzeda偶 i poobserwowa膰 mieszka艅c贸w.

Vietnam – Visiting Hoian

Hoian, Vietnam
Hoian, Vietnam

Hoian is a very touristic town and obviously there are many hotels or restaurants for tourists. On the other hand, I didn’t feel like surrounded by tourists, had my space and definitely could enjoy this lovely place! And as you see, taking pictures without people in them, wasn’t really a challenge.

__________________________________________________________

Hoian to bardzo turystyczne miejsce z wieloma hotelami i restauracjami. Mimo to, nie czu艂am si臋 osaczona przez turyst贸w. Co wi臋cej nie odnios艂am nawet wra偶enia, 偶e jest tam tylu obcokrajowc贸w, a zwiedzanie Hoian by艂o przyjemno艣ci膮. I jak widzicie, na zdj臋ciach nie ma zbyt wielu os贸b. 馃檪

Vietnam – New Clothes or Shoes ?

Something what really surprised me in Hoian was a popularity of tailor shops. There are hundreds places where you can ask for making any clothes, bags or shoes designed especially for you. Tailor shops are of different quality, some of them may be quite busy but others can even make your clothes at the same day. I didn’t do it, however met people with new fancy clothes, extra happy with prices and results. So if you have time and ideas it may be funny to try.

Did you try it in Vietnam?

__________________________________________________________

S艂yszeli艣cie o tym, 偶e w Wietnamie warto uszy膰 sobie odzie偶, torby czy buty na zam贸wienie? Ja nie mia艂am o tym poj臋cia, a偶 do momentu gdy wybra艂am si臋 do Wietnamu i pozna艂am kilka os贸b zachwyconych swoimi nabytkami. Hoian jest w艂a艣nie miejscem gdzie jest mn贸stwo krawc贸w oferuj膮cych swoje us艂ugi za niewielkie pieni膮dze. Mo偶na zaprojektowa膰 sobie cokolwiek i z艂o偶y膰 zam贸wienie. Niekt贸re sklepy wykonaj膮 zlecenie jeszcze tego samego dnia, a w innych trzeba kilka dni poczeka膰. Sama nie skorzysta艂am z oferty, ale mo偶e to by膰 swego rodzaju przygoda. 馃槈

Je偶eli byli艣cie w Wietnamie, macie jakie艣 do艣wiadczenie w tej kwestii?

Vietnam – Cycling

Cycling is very popular in Vietnam, both for locals and tourists. It’s possible to just rent a bicycle in one city or even take a bike trip through the country. Both ways can be great for exploring Vietnam, but be aware of the weather; cycling may be not so pleasant when it’s extra hot and humid…

__________________________________________________________

W Wietnamie bardzo du偶o os贸b je藕dzi na rowerze, i tury艣ci i Wietnamczycy.
Zwiedzanie Wietnamu na rowerze jest do艣膰 popularne. Niekt贸rzy wypo偶yczaj膮 rower by zwiedzi膰 jedno miasto i okolice, a inni decyduj膮 si臋 na kilkudniow膮 wypraw臋 rowerow膮 przez Wietnam. Obie opcje s膮 ciekawe, jednak warto przemy艣le膰 czy d艂ugotrwa艂e peda艂owanie w deszczu i upale jest tym czego naprawd臋 chcemy. 馃槈
