To visit the Hue Citadel you have to pay for a ticket. Prices are lower if you have a Vietnamese Passport. The site is open everyday from first thing in the morning till five in the afternoon. If you cannot visit the complex in the morning, you may visit it in the afternoon. You will need, at least, three hours to see everything.
You can hire an English speaking guide in an office left of the entrance.
