Hue’s Temples
Hue has over 300 temples known as ancient citadel. There are a few that are noteworthy. The Hue temple is considered to be the most famous temple in the area. Located in the North west of the city, it dates back to 1383. Bach Ma Hue is the oldest temple in the city. It was home to King during the construction of the city. It also holds two Buddha images of importance - the Phra Sila and the Phra Satang Man. If you want to see classical northern Thai architecture, take a look at the Wat. The Wat is located outside of the city but is a wonderful place for meditation and different from Hue’s other temples. The Wat located outside of the city is known for its seven spires square. The Wat Chedi originally had a 280-foot-high pagoda but during 1545, it was partially destroyed by an earthquake. However, it is still something to see, with a mythical snake staircase accenting the front porch.

As long ago as the mid-18th century, Russian Orthodox priests discussed kayak fishing and the large number of fishes caught, in a tract known as “The Native History.”
The “sit-on” characteristic of kayaks make it an ideal platform to fish from. However, learning to fish from a kayak - becoming an expert at it - can take years, unless you’re lucky enough to have an experienced kayak fisher take you under their wing. The hardest part of kayak fishing is learning how to steady the kayak as you’re paddling through the water.

If you’re determined to learn how to fish from a kayak, here are some tips that might help you:
1. Safety
Before going out on the water, check the weather, the tide, and other elements about the area where you’re fishing. It’s also a good idea to let at least one, and possibly a few people know exactly where you’re going and when you plan to be back, so they can send help if you don’t return on time.
2. Keep Hatches Closed
While you’re fishing, keep the hatches on the kayak closed so water can’t seep through the kayak.
3. Steady Fishing
One way to keep the kayak steady while you’re fishing is to use an anchor.
