As part of activities welcoming the arrival of Tet, the biggest and most important festival year-round in Vietnam, the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre will re-enact the Neu tree planting ceremony, a traditional ritual practiced under the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) on January 28 (the 23rd day of the last lunar month).

There will also be an array of activities such as wrapping chung cake (a traditional Tet novelty cake made from glutinous rice).

In 2018, the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre earned 381.7 billion VND (16.4 million USD) from serving over 3.5 million tourists, up 19 percent compared to the target set.

The centre has implemented 24 restoration projects with total investment exceeding 278.8 billion VND (11.9 million USD).

Hue, the formal imperial capital of Vietnam for hundreds of years, is home to five heritages recognised by UNESCO, including the ancient citadel relic complex (a World Cultural Heritage site), Hue royal court music (an intangible cultural heritage item), Nguyen Dynasty’s wood blocks (a documentary heritage item), Nguyen Dynasty’s royal administrative documents (part of the Asia-Pacific Register of UNESCO’s Memory of the World Programme), and literature on Hue royal architecture (another documentary heritage).

The Hue imperial citadel relic site has been ranked second among the top seven tourist attractions of Vietnam in 2017.
