On the first two reopening days (October 15 and 16) after being hit by tropical storm Sonca, the imperial citadel relic site in Hue City attracted more than 2,000 guests, including many international visitors.
According to the Hue Monuments Conservation Center, on the afternoon of October 15, the site welcomed 462 guests. On October 16, the number of visitors to Hue Imperial Citadel—part of the complex of Hue Monuments recognized by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage—increased to 1,919.
Previously, Hue Imperial Citadel had to stop welcoming visitors as storm Sonca—the 5th to strike the country this year—made landfall in the central region on October 14, causing floods in Hue City.
Such photos show the love of visitors, especially foreigners, for learning about the culture and history of the Nguyen Dynasty, although the weather is unfavorable.
