  • 25 minutes to go to the center of hue and 2:30 in boat by the river of perfumes. Worth the drive. A beautiful harmony between the buildings, the mountains, the trees, the sky and the water in the pools, everywhere and in abundance. Very few tourists compared to the other must sees of Hué. Beautiful, cultural one of our most beautiful visits to Viet Nam in a week.

  • There are several Royal tombs to visit in Hue and this is one worth visiting. Would recommend doing this with a guide so you pick up on all the history.  more »
  • Lovely place to visit, we got there early before the crowds so had a lovely easy walk through the beautiful grounds. Koi carp ponds every where & they sell fish food for 500 vnd.  more »

  • Lăng Minh Mạng (Hiếu lăng) Vua Minh Mạng là hoàng đế thứ 2 triều Nguyễn, sau Gia Long. Điều mình nhớ nhất về ông vua này là sùng Nho giáo, đóng cửa với Tây nhưng vẫn cố gắng xây dựng hải quân, đặc biệt đáng nhớ là vị vua mở rộng lãnh thổ Việt Nam tới mức lớn nhất trong lịch sử (chiếm cả Lào và Cambodia). Do mối thù với ông Lê Văn Duyệt nên cai trị không đúng đắn, về sau Cam và Lào nổi dậy lật đổ ách đô hộ :3 Đây là công trình bề thế uy nghi nhất trong số những lăng tẩm của vua chúa nhà Nguyễn. Kiến trúc thể hiện rõ tầm nhìn của vua Minh Mạng và thể hiện cả triết lý nhân sinh quan trong đó, được nhiều học giả đánh giá cao. Lăng này Minh Mạng xây được một nửa thì mất, vua Thiệu Trị tiếp tục hoàn thành. Cách thành phố hơn 10km, đường đi hơi vắng, chạy một hồi tưởng lạc.
  • I loved this tomb very much. It had it's own mystic atmosphere. Great place to take fabulous pictures and just to enjoy ancient Vietnamese culture for a while.
  • I like this place, it was not huge like the imperial palace, but, it's quite beautiful. But the heat is killing me. Wear hat or something to make sure you can endure the heat.
  • A beautiful place to see! The attention to detail is amazing!
  • Very beautiful Tomb probably the most beautiful of the 3 imperial tombs we visited while in Hue. Surrounded by artificial lakes and beautiful gardens it's the perfect place for pictures
