Despite all ravages of wars and time, Thuy Bieu remains intact as many hundreds of years ago when Nguyen Lords first founded thee land. Its housing architecture is typical of Hue with small cottages hidden in large luxuriant gardens, long gates and fences carved out of ornamental trees. Thuy Bieu is the cradle of Hue culture. The village is surrounded by a corridor of natural and cultural attractions. To the north, south and west is Perfume River and to the east is a stunning backdrop of low hills, including Vista Hill.
