Visited this as part of a group tour. Boarded our dragon boat and we made the trip within 30 minutes of sunset. The boats were pretty uninspiring and set up as a mobile sales office for clothes and souvenirs. The seats were plastic chairs and...More

This was a nice trip and I enjoyed the boat, they brought out the little souviners and I actully bought some stuff as the staff were very nice and not pushy. They also gave a fair price. The ride down the river is lovely and...More

The perfume river flows all along Hue and the surrounding key sites. Lovely to take a boat trip-- many options available-- to see more of the sights and relax on the water.

We went to Vietnam with Kiwi Vietnam Tours which was a dead loss. In Hue, we cruised on the Perfume River on a Dragon Boat. After a two hour trip, passing dull, unchanging, scrubby scenery, we “moored” (someone held a rope) executed a tricky manoeuvre...More

We enjoyed our cruise in a small boat on the Perfume River, which took us all along the shore to see the new construction, as well as the "old world" homes and buildings that line them. You will love the gentle breeze as you ride...More

While taking a nice stroll along the Perfume River with your significant other may sound like a nice thing for couples to do, the locals will ruin this experience. You simply cannot walk anywhere near the river without being pestered by a hoarde of hawkers...More

But I think there needs to be some attention to maintaining it, keeping it clean, observing the role it had historically. It wanders through Hue and what Vietnam should do is honor the river with environment and ecological practices. I think rivers like the Perfume...More

This river is 20 miles long and flows slowly through Hue, running through the middle with the Ancient City on the right and the Night Lantern Market on the left. Locals and tourists alike pay $3 to $5 for a 20 or 30-minute private board...More

Hi there - I didn't do the cooking experience so I can't help you I'm afraid - I did notice on all tours and courses that costs vary wildly depending on whether you book it yourself or if you go through a hotel. Have fun! Ben
