From fruits to seafood, the royal family who lived in Hue between 1802 and 1945 owe a lot of their elaborate cuisine to the products of Thuy Bieu and Tam Giang Lagoon. We discover the royal love for pomelo and seafood on the Thuy Bieu – Tam Giang Lagoon Full Day tour, operated by Incredible Asia Journeys. 

We begin at Thuy Bieu Eco-Village, a rural enclave to the west of Hue that boasts verdant nature in its tree-lined village paths, fruit orchards and splendid garden houses, once the retreats of members of the Nguyen Dynasty who held their royal court in Hue. After enjoying the delights of pomelo jam and tea in Thuy Bieu’s natural assets, we head to Tam Giang Lagoon, a vast expanse of shimmering water that stretches to the horizon in some parts and is backed by the gentle slopes of mountains in others. Fishermen here approach their jobs in the same way they have for hundreds of years, by casting large nets into the water and hauling up a fruitful catch.

The Thuy Bieu – Tam Giang Lagoon Full Day tour is perfect for discovering some of the natural wonders surrounding the ancient capital of Hue.
