There are 3 path you can chose from according to how much time you want to spend there. Though if you chose to visit it by yourself I reccomed to pay few more bucks and rent the audioguide. Othere wise you can book a private or groput tour on internet. There are many you can choose from. "
"I'd recommend booking a walking tour so you can understand what you are looking at. The history in Hue is fascinating and walking around the citadel feels like you are stepping back in time. "
