  • The tomb of Minh Mang was today as the first planned to visit on his 20 km outside the Centre of Hue in the serene rest in a nice park. If you are on time, around 10:00, you're pretty much just with your guide. In my opinion most beautiful of the three tombs.

  • A large and pretty tomb to visit. I went there as part of a full day tour. It was raining so I didn't hang around too much. I got some nice photos

  • 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.
