  • The gardens and buildings are well kept. There was a building with a small orchestra playing national musical instruments. When there, feed the carp in the small lake - red and white boiling water! Wh...  more »

  • The facility is huge, you can guess the former splendor. Because the main building currently being restored and is therefore veiled, then shouldn't really worth a visit visit Khai Dinh!

  • Pretty place to visit. We lived the lake and the greenery. The tomb itself is not too amazing. There's a lot of active construction to restore it so some parts are closed. Interesting taste of 19th century imperialism.
  • We went there by motorbike. It took us around 30min from Hue city center. It's a huge complex - since we did not have enough time, we could not explore all of it. But wat we saw, was beautiful. I could easily spend several hours there, since it has a very relaxing athmosphere.
  • A vietnam historical place where the King Tu Duc was rested, beautiful landscape, visiting here you will know about a King that contributed to the development of vietnam in the past with good leadership.
  • Tomb of King Tu Duc - the 4th king of the last dynasty in Vietnam. Its layout is entirely different from that of the tombs of the previous kings: its various buildings and structures don't align in a straight axis as in the other tombs but instead blending with the lakes and hills in the area. Beautiful as a poem
  • Huge park in the middle of a pines forest. Very pleasant walking through trees and old tombs. Currently all the buildings are damaged by the time but people are renovating all of them..good to enjoy the shadow in a calm place.
