There are hundreds of ways to experience Vietnam in all it’s beautifully chaotic splendor, but if you’ve ever yearned to cross the threshold into private homes, you’ll know that most of the tourist haunts provide only surface views of everyday living at a glance. Want to immerse yourself truly? We’ve got the solution. La Residence in Hue offers a fabulous Residential Life program that peers behind the curtain at everyday traditional life in the country’s towns and cities.

Guests of the program embark on an intriguing one-of-a-kind exploration that includes 2 nights at La Residence in a superior room, visits to a pair of traditional Vietnamese homes where descendants of Vietnamese royalty still reside today, visits to 2 French homes built in the colonial era including a gorgeous lunch served in the garden, cyclo transport and dinner at Le Parfum, the city’s premiere eatery. A dinner experience at Tha Om is also included, one of the city’s most exquisite compounds of traditional Vietnamese homes, whose owner is a noted preservationist and antiques dealer who has saved and revitalized four traditional garden homes bounded on one side by a stunning half-moon lotus pond.

It’s something out of a dream, a most unique way to experience how you’ve always envisioned this part of the world to be, behind traditionally closed doors for a revolutionary experience only a privileged few have been able to see.
