  • My friend and I booked an all-day tour of Hue, which was a smart (and reasonably priced) investment. We booked via our hotel (the Serene Palace) and it included the Pagoda, Citadel, and two tombs, inc...  more »
  • This mausoleum is moving due to its history. The setting is superb and relaxing. This is a real dive in life and in the history of the Viet Nam.

  • Nice simetric place to see. Tickets are about 100k VND but if you will go to other tombs you can buy them all together for better price. They are valid for 2 days.
  • An impressive site and an impressive sight. You'll want to set aside a bit of time to wander around this tomb and fully appreciate the site. It's definitely worth heading to, but I'd advise going there with a guide in order to learn more about the tomb's context.
  • Definitely in the top two best preserved / restored Nguyen tombs. Easy to view on your own - I cycled from the city on a typical Hue pushbike, the hills and route were manageable. Probably one of my favourite sights so far in Vietnam.
  • Probably the most beautiful of the 3 imperial tombs we visited on Hue. It's a huge and vast construction with a path surrounded by artificial lakes and temples. A perfect place for pictures. We paid the combined pass for the 3 tombs and it was OK priced.
  • One of the better preserved and managed tombs in Hue. Easy road suitable for tourists. Dont like the sight of vendors trying to persuade me to buy stuff. Part of the area is fenced off. I understand the reason but it is really a turn off for adventurous spirits.
