And now for some of the more typical sights that visitors go to see in Hue - temples and tombs up the Perfume River from the city centre.
The most common way to visit them is by boat but the boats couldn't get under a bridge due to the flood waters so we had to hire a car and driver.
Our first stop was at the Khai Dinh mausoleum. It was built for Khải Định, the twelfth Emperor of the Nguyễn dynasty. It was built from 1920 to 1931 taking 11 years to complete.
The morning was very dull and wet and not many of my photos of the tomb itself were much good. I had to use an ISO if 3200.
The main photo looks out from the tomb to the entrance and beyond whilst the 1 photos in the WS shows some interior detail and the others a row of statue guards.
