  • Seems to have a lot of beautiful garden House decorated the garden with flowers in hue. One of them went on tour one day. Paying 20,000 dong, just inside the gate is admirable. It's a large square pond cottage style residence. Time we behave tea, loose, I really liked it but I'm...... long story guide here. Guide-Kun would be devout Buddhists, about a 30-minute long talking constantly.

  • The main entrance to the tomb is Dai Hong Mon gate, from there we will have to walk half a kilometer to reach the central courtyard. Once in the central courtyard, there to climb a staircase of granite that will lead us to the Pavilion of steles. From there, we will cross a bridge that crosses a Lake of lotus flowers, the Lake of the new moon, up to the temple where is the sarcophagus of Emperor Minh Mang.

  • We took the tour to visit the Royal tombs. This was the first stop. An extra must pay to enter and really not worth it. The House has not too special. The only good thing was the guide that we had on the tour which featured stories and a bit of philosophy and culture of Viet Nam. The place itself is not worth it.
