Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam, is a famous destination to both domestic and foreign tourists. Regarding Hue, people often think about a peaceful and silent city where tourists can dig into history and natural beauty. It is said that visiting Hue without seeing the Imperial City is not truly a visit. But if you spend time at the Imperial City, and skip having a stay in Lang Co Bay, you just made a poor decision. To many tourism magazines, Lang Co bay has been written as one of the best places for retreat and relaxation of Hue thanks to its beautiful long beaches and cool weather almost all year. The Bay is dubbed as the heaven of Hue’s tourism.
Lang Co Bay, the Heaven of Tourism in Hue
From Hue downtown 60km to the North, and 30km from Da Nang to the South, Lang Co Bay silently lies on a unique location with the view of both mountain and sea. It is not surprising to call Lang Co Bay as the heaven of Hue’s tourism. Though the weather in Lang Co is ordinarily nice and cool, if you want to visit this place, you should not go from August to November. This time in Hue is the rainy season that waves are more often and the sea water is muddy. From December to March, the sea water is a bit cold, for which the tourist number is also small. However, if you want to take a retreat during this time, Lang Co is still an interesting suggestion for you.
