THUY BIEU POMELO PERFUME CYCLING
Routes: HUE - THUY BIEU VILLAGE - HUE
Price: 35 USD / person
Located near the center of Hue imperial city, Thuy Bieu village is known for its serenity, immense grapefruit gardens and hundreds of years old houses. The name Thuy Bieu may originate from the three sides of Thuy Bieu village surrounded by romantic Perfume River (Thuy means water and Bieu means a gourd).
In March,the thanh trà (a variety of pomelo) village of Thuy Bieu along the Huong river turns into white with the color and fragrance of pure white grapefruit (bưởi) flowers. This gives visitors slower-paced moments to enjoy the values of gifts from the nature.
Those who come to Hue in March should stop in Thuy Bieu and travel freely on the beautiful winding roads. Everywhere is filled with the color and fragrance of grapefruit flowers, as well as a pleasingly rustic ambience that other villages can hardly offer. Then, they will be able to experience being true farmers, working on the fertile soil and gardens of the ancient capital and enjoying the values grapefruit flowers offer.
