Thuy Bieu is a laid back village situated on the southern bank of Perfume River, around 7km from Hue centre. Thuy Bieu is famous for its mild sweet Thanh Tra, a special kind of pomelo which boasts refined fragrance and green skin. Locals name it Thanh Tra (meaning green tea pomelo).
Every spring, the village is filled with its aromatic white flower and when autumn comes, the ripe pomelo can be found everywhere.
Thuy Bieu is featured by its rustic settings, typical of Hue countryside. The whole village is hidden in luxuriant gardens of citruit and bamboo. Local peole live in small blue cottages, built in traditional architecture with small chambers, titled roof and long gate.
All houses have a small altar on one side of the gate dedicated to ancestor worshipping. You may also find many temples and communal houses in the village, a feature of Hue culture.
