  • Beautiful old arena and If you watch closely Tiger's claws marks can be seen on the walls. Sometims its close for the public. So if you are in luck and it is open it is a good place to visit.
  • Lovely old building but under renovation like everything else. In the area. Can't go inside, and the facade is ruined by no entry signs and construction materials
  • It's okay, only about 2km from town , good for about 10 minutes. Usually there's a guy who'll let you in for 20,000 I think. Or land down around 11am-2pm when he's on lunch and jump the fence.
  • An ancient arena at the Nguyen dynasty where battles between tiger and elephants are held. Built after so many lethal accident happened when the battles are held in open air areas. Quite well preserved now. Just the arena, no real battles are in action nowsaday. Expected to spend 30 mins here is more than enough. Accessible easily by bike or car.
  • Dep, con giu duoc ve dep cua co xua,mien phi xem, các ban nen den do 1 lan khi den hue, gan trung tam thanh pho ( near central, nice place, the old temple of Tiger, really interested u should to go there by motorbike and enjoy the natural of life)
