The poetic of the rain

Hue’s heavy rain season starts in September and would last till December. Drizzle continues till April, when the summer thunderstorms arrive.The rain, uniquely, is part of the culture of aesthetics in Hue. There are different kinds of rain, which are appreciated by the people for different features.

Whether being caught in a sudden showers on a shady street, or paddling along soggy sidewalks, Hue residents regard the rain as part of life’s rhythm.


Many regard Hue as the Venetians regard Venice: a place where the sky and water meet, a place of different to any other place on earth.

After all, Hue’s rain has inspired the work of generations of poets, painters and musicians. The coffee shops in Hue have already been bringing tourists and locals together to meditate, enjoy music and poetry, while drinking tea or coffee. A poetry festival has been mooted, and there are plans to stage partries along the Perfume River (Huong River) with stops at different scenic places.A system of hotels and cafes, in tune with the environment and the mood of the people will provide an ideal atmosphere to enjoy the sights through the mysterious veil of the rain.To this may be added poetry readings, musical performances, painting and cooking classes, and meditation sessions in gardens and pagodas.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. (John Ruskin)
