  • Perfume River (Huong River) is a large river flowing through the heart of Hue City being famous for its poetic beauty. The river has many names: Lo Dung, Linh, Dinh, Kim Tra, Huong. It’s said that it is called Perfume River (Huong River) because at the head of the river there are varieties of grass, flowers and fruits to bring the fragrance into the stream. Therefore, Perfume River is not only beautiful but also fragrant.
    Foreigners translated the name of the river into French and English also using the name rivière des Parfums or Perfume River. But there are also people who claim that the origin of the name is from the fact that the river flows through Huong Tra district (formerly Kim Tra), not the fragrance.

    Sailing on a royal emperor dragon boat listening to Hue songs on the Perfume River is a royal pleasure of the Nguyen rulers during the ancient time. Current dragon boats are designed based on the dragon boat model of that period. With its long history, Perfume River has been the foundation for the promotion of tourism to both domestic and overseas guests.
