Mountain
“Vong Canh hill is 43 meters in height and located about 7km from the central area of Hue, with the foot lying next to flowing Huong River . This hill at first seems to be rather normal among many famous Hue attractions. Nevertheless, visitors should not miss this site because it is considered as the best spot to see a panoramic view of Huong River. This could easily be understood from its name: “Vọng” means observing, watching and “Cảnh” means scenes.”
