During the rainy days, Hue looks more romantic and a little bit pretty sad; this makes many travelers love Hue Rain. You can sit down at a coffee shop with French colonial buildings to enjoy the beauty of Hue Rain; or you can find out the colorful streets because of the color of ponchos worn by the local people moving up and down on the streets.
