  • The tomb of Emperor Tu Duke, one of the most beautiful sites of Hué is imperative. It is one of the models of Vietnamese art. It is also an opportunity to get to know the history of the dynasty of the Nguyen and the French colonial invasion. And finally you can listen to traditional music to cool. I would recommend the services of a guide.

  • Rented a moped in Hue to get to this location. Very easy ride even in the rain. This was one of the locations that our hotel recommended and it was fantastic. Beautiful stone carvings here.
  • Rode all the way out there and entered only to be told to leave because they were working on stuff. Beware you might come away empty handed.
  • This tomb unfortunately is often mistaken with Tu Duc and Khai Dinh. Most photos show the wrong place. The real Dong Khanh tomb is situated slightly behind Tu Duc, you can walk or drive a couple minutes there from Tu Duc parking lot. The entrance is free, the tomb is very old and in my opinion the most interesting in this area.
  • The largest of the tombs sites. Many buildings and areas to explore with historical artefacts. A lovely area to sit and think and get out of the rain. WC's clearly signed at entrance and far side of site. Street food outside and souvenirs.
  • Very small, nothing really going on here. Can take it all in within five minutes. Dark and unattended. I think the people who reviewed this tomb are mistaking it for the other nearby tomb.
