The highlight of the two banks of the Huong River

After being put into operation in early 2019, the ironwood bridge has become an attractive destination, along with the walkway along the Huong River from Phu Xuan Bridge to Truong Tien Bridge. These have become new and indispensable "check-in" points for visitors to Hue.

From the ironwood bridge highlight, the city continues to implement many projects to embellish the area on the two banks of the Huong River, including the two walking routes on the South and the North banks, the parks, and the green spots along the two river banks, which changes the image of Hue urban and creates more recreational spots for the local and tourists.

After nearly 2 years of implementing the relocation of residents out of area I of Hue Citadel and investing in infrastructure of North Huong So residential area, up to now, the city has completed the migration of  the locals on Thuong Thanh area. Nearly 500 households have "settled down" on the new land, and poor households are supported to build houses with the "turnkey" method; the city has continued to deploy the relocation of the locals in the area of Eo Bau, Ho Thanh moat, Defensive route, etc.

This is a historic migration, ensuring the compensation and support policy in accordance with the policy framework approved by the Prime Minister and current regulations.

In the near future, the city will develop more projects on bicycle serving the needs of riding in the parks and on the walking paths along the river banks; embellish bus stations in a modern direction and gradually replace outdoor billboards with a modern and environmentally friendly LED screen system.

In Phu Xuan Park (from Phu Xuan Bridge to Da Vien Bridge), the roads connecting the inside of Ngan Gate, Quang Duc Gate and Nha Do Gate are being built, creating a connecting route from the monuments to the area along the two banks of the Huong river. The Ben Me area is focused on embellishing and building community bathing spots with a system of small parking spots for tourists.
