Ho Citadel is a historic site. When come here you will be discover the beutiful and archaic. I believe you will have a exciting trip. If have time to Viet Nam, let visit to Thanh Hoa, there are many historic sites here.

it depends on where you start your trip. If from Hanoi, there is about 4h driving, if from Nghe An, it's the same. So you should combine your visit with Puluong or Pumat trips. good luck
