    To Charter a taxi without expecting too much, went from hue. Taxi driver here to see how many minutes? Asked and was told 40 minutes. This? Thinking is good and go up the stairs and look forward, looking back. Is something like but not in Viet Nam? I thought. As are affected by culture, I felt in many other countries.

    Dinh is spent long years and taxes, was made. We visited in a private guided tour. Total 127 stairs to climb and get inside of a stunning wall decor came into the eyes. Beer bottles together pieces of Chinese porcelain and glass jars, and made, and written with "NIPPON", the Kanji written pieces, such as was seen. 模shiたri four seasons on the part of the wall and look were tired. Also, and look around from the top of the stairs and mountains, but Dinh back to resemble a dragon, the White Tiger, on the left side right side, guarding the Imperial tomb of Khai's guide sent from learned. Also posthumously deified Emperor kaidin is historically disliked as is the thought and I, and I was impressed.

    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.
