Wide river running through Hue. Several bridges cross the river and have safe walking paths. You can take a boat across or go on a boat trip up the river one of the bridges is lit up at night but wasn't when we were there

Hi there - I didn't do the cooking experience so I can't help you I'm afraid - I did notice on all tours and courses that costs vary wildly depending on whether you book it yourself or if you go through a hotel. Have fun! Ben
