It's a gentle river with enough tourist attractions, for example the Perfume River is the setting where the film was shot (the original title is Full Metal Jacket). The perfume River also stands out because its edge is the Thien Mu Pagoda. If you are planning your Vietnam travel package, don't miss out this wonderful experience.
Hire a boat for a day and take a trip along the Perfume River to explore the various Tombs of the Emperors. Dating from the 19th century, the best preserved examples are the Tomb of Tu Duc and The Tomb of Minh Mang already listed above.

There is also the Tomb of Dong Khanh which was constructed in 1917 and the Tomb of Khai Dinh which is the best preserved tomb along the river.
