  • Very beautiful, harmonious and majestic. Often done as easy to access so many tourists. The most charming, smooth and impressive in the end is that of Minh Mang, the favorite of our guide, much more far but worth +++ do not stop to you Duke.

  • Seoul's Olympic Park is spacious and secluded atmosphere that is reminiscent of. A tranquil and refined feel to see directly into the Tomb. Flowing around the Creek and feel cozy thanks to a lot of trees.

  • From our point of view the most beautiful imperial tomb of all. A huge and peaceful Lake, stone bridges and wooden constructions. Tu Duc Tomb integrates perfectly with the surrounding landscape.

  • This was a fabulous place. I liked it very much. Took some great pictures while exploring the tomb by myself. Legend has it that somewhere on the grounds an enormous treasure is hidden. Unfortunately I didn't find it but maybe someone else will ;)
  • The tomb is actually a part of large park of several emperor's family tombs, lakes and other buildings. Nice and quiet place definitely with the visit.
  • This was the only one we visited of the three main tombs and were happy with it! Really nice setting!
  • A very nice tomb with the traditional mosaic design inside with a modern twist, very intricately done. The site itself is a very impressive one.
  • Was very cool from a historical perspective. More information could be made available via a pamphlet or signs. The area is fairly large and it's hard to get an idea on how everything falls into place without a guide. Neat to see the burial sights and to put into perspective how much land is arranged for them, and how - in this case, I'm unsure of the others - it was built prior to his death so he could enjoy it.
