If you are traveling to Vietnam you should definitely include Hue in your Itinerary. During my visit to Hue, what I felt was, Hue is the apt location to visit if you are interested in history. Hue reveals the traditional culture and religious nature of Vietnam.
Things to See in Hue
Thien Mu Pagoda
Thien Mu Pagoda or Pagoda of Celestial Lady is one of the most interesting things to visit. This seven-storied pagoda overlooks the Perfume River. Though the temple was built in 1601 the pagoda was constructed later in 1844. The pagoda is famous for the golden Buddha, the big bell and stone turtle with marble stele. The Thich Quang, a Buddhist monk burned himself to death at this place.
Khai Dinh Tomb
This imperial tomb in Vietnam was completed in 1931, 11 years after the work was started. During your climb up the mountain, you will be able to watch the beauty of nature. The walls of the tomb are adorned by attractive porcelain and inlaid glass images.
The Provincial Museum
This museum offers the display of war vehicles of the past, which includes helicopters, tanks, etc. The description given along with the war vehicles provides information about from where these vehicles were captured.
Perfume River Cruise
I really enjoyed the boat cruise along the Perfume River. You will be able to get a glimpse of local villages, the important attractions and temples, and tombs during the cruise in the river. If you are opting for dinner cruise you can enjoy authentic Vietnamese style dinner and folk music on board.
The Imperial city or The Citadel contains palace and fortress which were the former residence of emperors of Vietnam. Though most part of the structure is damaged and restored, you can still see the remnants of the original fortress.

This national park offers magnificent waterfalls, camping, hiking and swimming opportunities to the visitors. It is also the habitat for rare plants and animals.
I am the kind of visitor who lives to explore very exciting and charming places, and that was filled by this beautiful and vibrant city, Toronto. It is the largest city in Canada. It is the most cosmopolitan city around Canada and bustling with diversified cultures, with people speaking over 140 different languages around. Toronto is a representation of urban civilization so you’re bound to find yourself among various tall buildings and classy neighborhoods. Toronto hosts the biggest film festival, and not to forget it is the kind of city you will never get bored in. These places must be visited.

From any corner of the city, you can get hold of this tower, it is that high. You can take a trip to the observation centers that are made on top of the CN tower. They even stage various restaurants, where you can eat splendid cuisines with a look over Lake Ontario. The sky pod is the best attraction as an observatory, standing at 447 meters. This starts with 400 Canadian Dollars.
Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada
The aquarium is the most loved tourist attraction after the CN tower, and it is located at the base of the CN tower. This absolutely beautiful facility represents almost all sorts of marine life and is a family loved attraction. It offers you the underwater tunnel and it is breathtaking, it also holds a continuous moving sidewalk. They also offer you the dining under the water experience and it is very rich, able to give you goosebumps and feel pretty happy.

It involves the rare pigmy hippos and penguins and orangutans and a lot more. The entry fee here is 165 Canadian Dollars and is a very loves children outing.
Waco is a popular city and it is located in central Texas. I planned a trip to Waco after my friends insisted me. Though the city is not so popular from a tourism point of view, during my visit, I wondered why this is not so. The city is small and has lots of things to do and see. Some of the most liked places of Waco are:

This zoo is the home to lions, markets, and otters. Along with lots of animals, you would find here lots of relaxing time. It is an apt place to visit with friends and family.

Dr. Pepper Museum
Then I headed to Dr pepper museum, the locals of Waco love to visit this museum and so I too decided to be here. It was an amazing experience. We saw an old method of making soft drinks and the best part you can have it all for free.

This is also a must visit place in Waco. This is basically a fossil site and has bones of Columbian mammoths. I was mesmerized to see the size of this mammoth.

Tampa is another wonderful city in Florida and it is located along the gulf coast of Florida. My trip to Tampa was great and so, I decided to share my experience with people so that they can also have the same amount of fun as I had. I plan my Tampa tour after discussing things with my friend who has been to the city a few weeks back. He told me, what is the good spot that I should cover in Tampa to see the maximum beauty of the place in minimum time. In short, Tampa is a city on Tampa Bay present along with Florida’s Gulf Coast. It is a major business center and known for its culture and museums.

The carrier dome is another major attraction of Syracuse. This is the only domed shaped stadium in the region. There is no point of visiting this stadium when it is empty. You can see here sports matches like basketball, football, and ice skating show.
Niagara Mohawk Building, this is a landmark building built by Art Deco. The main attraction of this building is that it can be illuminated in any color at any point in time. I have clicked some pictures with this landmark building and have preserved it in my special collection.
