‘City of Ghosts’, where the dead live in style

tomb2news54s5454sf54fimageJust outside Vietnam’s ancient imperial capital Hue is a tiny fishing town known as the City of Ghosts, where the dead live in more opulent style than the living.
The spectacular tombs of Vietnam’s former emperors are a well-trodden stop on the tourist circuit in Unesco-listed Hue, the country’s capital for some 140 years starting in 1802.
