As the ancient capital of Vietnam under the Nguyen Dynasty, Hue is renowned for its solemn and respectful imperial citadel. However, this place also possesses a poetic beauty that captivates the hearts. Hue proudly preserves a representative cultural heritage, including a system of nearly 1,000 cultural relics. The most outstanding among them is the Complex of Hue Monuments, recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage.

For a long time, Hue has been known not only as a dreamy land but also as an ancient and gentle capital with time seemingly slowing down. Nature has favored this region, nestled amidst the beauty of the sea, rivers, mountains, and passes. Traveling to Hue is like a tranquil journey, allowing visitors to slowly explore and appreciate the beauty of this historical land.

To enhance the cultural and historical experience for visitors in this ancient capital, the Department of Tourism has collaborated with the Information Technology Center of Thua Thien Hue Province (HueCIT) and other relevant units to launch the Hue City Passport application. This initiative aims to assist tourists in utilizing technology to discover the famous tourist destinations in Hue. It is one of the solutions to promote and develop tourism in the region.

Mr. Nguyen Van Phuc, the Director of the Department of Tourism of Thua Thien Hue Province, delivered a speech at the Launch Ceremony of the Hue City Passport application

During the event, Mr. Nguyen Van Phuc, the Director of the Department of Tourism of Thua Thien Hue Province, stated: "The Hue City Passport application makes it easier for tourists in their journey. The travel passport goes beyond being just an information channel; we hope that technology will be a lever to increase interaction with tourists. It serves as both an information channel and a game, a journey to conquer destinations for travelers."

"In the initial phase, we will launch the passport with the first exploration program called 'Heritage and Famous Destinations in Hue,' introducing unique places not to be missed when you want to learn about the architecture and culture of Hue. Not stopping there, in the future, the Hue City Passport will be developed with various programs, promising to open up many new exploration journeys with diverse themes such as cuisine, spirituality, resorts, health tourism, and more," added Mr. Nguyen Van Phuc.
