  • We went to see the tomb and it was closed for renovation. Although the main tomb was shut, the rest is quite nice to view but there are other tombs to visit, so go see them as you don’t get much for y...  more »
  • As with all tombs of the past Emperor's around Hue, worth a visit but some like this badly damaged from war, a lot of work is needed and massive amount of signage and information is required to explai...  more »
  • I wanted to pay with dollars, which was not a problem. Price was also the same. You wanted to pay off the change in dong. But against checked: I had the 3.5 times the price must pay. I told you, you gave me 60 k Dong more. But it lacked Dong getting 200 k. They wanted to give it to me, so I wanted the $100 back and the visit had unfortunately failed.

  • I've seen plenty of temples in south-east Asia and this one has definitively climbed my personal top 10 list of the most beautiful temples i've ever seen.. Pls folks, wear appropriate clothes to visit those HOLY and historical significant places... Its a matter of showing respect...
  • No story or context available. Wiki it before you go. Interesting tails of Tu Duc.
  • 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.
  • Entrance is 100,000 vdn but it is worth it as the complex is very big and you can easily spend over 1 hour walking around. Very beautiful and nicely kept.
  • If you are visiting Huê a visit to the emperor's tombs are a must. Tu Duc is certainly the most visited one but it is so beautiful it worth copping with the crowd and it is pretty big so it is manageable anyway
