To Pete, Hue is the famous place with many delicious dishes. This is the old capital area with palaces and mausoleums of Nguyen dynasty. Besides, things that most appeal to tourists are local dishes such as bun bo Hue (noodles), nem lui (spring roll), banh cuon (wrapped cake) that are not expensive at all.
