  • What made this visit to a royal tomb so interesting was the elongated layout of the site and the fact that it is surrounded by water. Do some research and find a photo taken from above. It's pretty...  more »

  • This place is so relaxing. It is quiet big and there is some walking involved so the best time to visit would be early morning or late afternoon. Nevertheless, it has again that weird relaxing aspect and there was a cool breeze so the heat was bearable. The place itself is amazing. You can appreciate how much work has been put into it and how respected and loved the late emperor was.
  • One of the more complete tombs and a delightful place to while away a few hours. Some signage in English in the small museum area but you might need google or a guide to fill out a more expansive commentary on this important site.
  • Tombs of one of the oldest emperors in Vietnam. Amazing to know how far people went to make sure their Kings lived in comfort even in the afterlife. In the beginning I thought this tomb wasn't as majestic, but the deeper I went the more I learnt I was wrong! I also really liked that they had very clear signs in English telling us about the place
  • If you arrived at 8am there, you will really appreciate this quite and nice place during 30 minute as this place was yours. After 8.30am, all the tourist bus (of 40 seats each) will arrive consequently. I really loved this place before all tourists arrived.
  • Beautiful lush place, it's very large!! We were very happy we came to this place.
