Best to get a local person to take you by car and help you choose a restaurant and boatman to take you there. Awesome Viet experience sitting eating, drinking Huda and generally enjoying life alongside great absolutely fresh seafood.

I would like to go to the Lagoon for sunrise and to see fishermen in action. What's the cost of a cab if I had to go for an hour or so and the cab will wait for me and brings me back to the hotel? Thanks

Hi, It's about 15kms fron Hue downtown. It's a nice trip, but you need a half day. Do it with huetourist, they have daily departure and you'll help the poor comunity on the lagoon. Have nice trip.
