If we stay over a couple of nights in Hue, on our way to Hoi An, what area is best for us to stay, no budget, and are the sites far apart. Any idea what to do in the short time we have. Thank you.

Also a trip out to two or three of the tombs - Minh Mang very beautiful. We booked a driver through a travel office in the streets behind our hotel (Moonlight).
Check the multi-entry tickets for the Citadel and Tombs.
You can take a river trip to the Pagoda.
Don't miss the night market in the 'walking street' by the river - much of it is 100% touristy, but there are also the fantastic stalls selling multi colour ice drinks and street food by the bridge.
