Hue will launch open-top buses running through famous tourist attractions in the former imperial capital from Sept. 1 to improve travel experiences.

The buses will depart from Toa Kham Wharf next to the Huong (Perfume) River carrying passengers past a series of tourist landmarks like Thien Mu Pagoda, the Imperial Citadel, Dong Ba Market, Tu Hieu Pagoda and royal tombs.

Buses are scheduled to operate from 8 a.m. to 5:20 p.m. daily with each trip 40 minutes apart.

Ticket prices have not yet been revealed.

Hue used to be the feudal capital of Nguyen Dynasty, Vietnam's last royal family (1802-1945) and is famed for its royal mausoleums and other historic heritages.

Open-top tourist buses also ply Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Long.
