NDO – The Hue Monument Conservation Centre will launch a virtual reality tour for visitors to Hue Imperial City on April 27.

The tour is developed under a cooperation programme between the centre and its Republic of Korea (RoK)’s partner, IV COM Co., Ltd.

Accordingly, Hue imperial city is the first heritage site in Vietnam and one of three sites in the world to deploy the advanced technology to serve visitors, together with two other sites in China and the RoK.

By taking the virtual tour, visitors are invited to take a tour inside a multidimensional space where the past and present meet, travelling back to 200 years ago to explore the elaborate design and grandiose exteriors of Khai Dinh tomb, the resting place of Khai Dinh Emperor (1885-1925), recreated in glorious colours.

The launch of the tour aims to add a highlight for visitors during their exploration of the Complex of Hue Monuments, which was honoured by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
