Although this ancient city is bigger for the Tết holiday to experience, Hue still has a pretty good vibe for New Year’s Eve. Let’s have a look at how you should enjoy your New Year 2020 moment in Hue in style.
Unlike Hanoi and Saigon where there’s insane traffic, massive crowds and horns constantly blaring, Hue is more relaxed with crowd starting to gather around Hue walking streets and Ngo Mon Square.
New Year’s Eve in Hue is an unforgettable atmosphere every year – you will see hundreds of thousands of young people enjoying time with their friends and families.
The midnight fireworks shoot off in front of Ky Dai – The Flagpole, which is the signature monument of the ancient city Hue.
Most people watch the show from the other side of Huong River or from many rooftop bars around Hue backpacking area.
These are some better cozy dinner ideas for you before the firework show at midnight:
- Enjoy gala dinner at Azerai La Residence Hue, 5 Le Loi street, Hue.
- Have dinner at Huong river Floating restaurant, 23rd Sep Park, Hue.
- Get ready for fireworks & enjoy a night picnic with your friends from 11pm onwards at Ly Tu Trong park, Hue
Hue Walking Street
This lively weekend entertainment corner of Hue covers three main streets of Chu Van An, Vo Thi Sau and Pham Ngu Lao, which form a triangle of bars, cafe, boutique restaurants and art galleries.
And the best part? Motorbikes aren’t allowed. It’s crazy busy on New Year’s Eve, but it’s also a great spot for snacks and street performers and a decent view of the fireworks on top of DMZ rooftop bar.
The best way to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Hue is to order a cocktail at a rooftop bar and wait for the countdown moments. It’s the perfect combination – fancy drinks, good service and a great view of the fireworks.
There are many rooftop bar and cafés for New Year’s Eve in Hue with a stunning view of The Perfume River. Keep in mind that you will probably need to make a reservation for most of these places, so call early.
