Flying to Hue . I have three quick questions:

1. A few travelers told me that a nice day trip is to rent bikes for the day and bike out to Thuan An beach. The rough guide says the beach is dirty. Anyone done this recently and could recc this trip or is there a different beach that is not listed in the rough guide? Also, haven't rented bikes yet in vietnam. About how much should I pay for a day's rental?

2. Beach parties in Hue? True? They sound fun, how do we know about them?

3. What is the best way to see the mausoleums along the perfume river? Can anyone recc a guide or tour agency they went with? What was the average cost for the trip?

!. If you are talking about push bikes, many hotels/GHs rent them for $1-2 for the day. Motorbikes are around $7 for the day, you buy the petrol.

2. No clue.

3. I went with 'Cafe on Thu Wheels' motorbike tour. 80,000VND. Most let a VN guide do the driving. I wanted to ride my own, had to prove to them knew how to ride. Since I owned a Honda Dream for many years, that was no biggie. Other travel shops offer moto tours as well. You also can hire a taxi or take a cruise on the Perfume River to see the tombs.

I did a tour with 'Cafe on Thu wheels' and it was an amazing day out, even though the rain didn't let up all day long!

If you want a guided tour then I would definately recommend this company. I felt safe with my driver, even in the bad weather and the tour quide knew his stuff and was very funny indeed.

You get to go to the Perfume River and the Citadel along with loads of other sites of the city....

Hope you get a dry day - that would have most definitely added to my experience!

Lucy, my tour photos, pg 8 under VN, you will see me in my rain jacket. It was more of a drizzle than rain, but still not a great day. At the French Bunker, I took off my jacket for the photo. I think Hue gets its share of rain!
