About 12km from Hue city along National Highway 1A, Chuon lagoon (Cau Hai lagoon) belongs to Phu Vang district, Thua Thien Hue. This is a big part of the Tam Giang lagoon system, where visitors can experience the rich life of local people. At the same time, the Chuon lagoon is also the most beautiful place to watch the sunrise in Hue.
To catch the sunrise, visitors need to be here from 4am – 4:30am. The characteristic of the Chuon lagoon is the vastness of space, the flute barrier system (a form of aquaculture) divides the water surface into fields, dotted with a few small boats and fisherman’s huts.
When the sun has not yet risen, the whole lagoon area is engulfed in a misty mist. Gradually, the eastern horizon changed from pink purple to orange, then orange to a brilliant red as the sun rose completely.
