  • Imperial tombs place , ancient, beautiful, worthy to visit. I loved walls made with ceramic mosaic. When you're in Vietnam I recommend to see.

  • This place is incredibly beautiful and can take 30 to 45 minutes to see it all. Lots of good photography places and the tomb itself is really well kept. Tickets are not expensive at all, around 100,000 if I remember correctly. No need to book online, tickets are at the door and there is plenty of space to walk around, a gift shop, toilets and a photography section if you want to sit on the throne and get dress ups. Ofcourse that's an additional price inside.
  • - It's an interesting place to visit. - Recommend to come early in the morning when it's nice and cool,not too hot. And browsing through place to place at least 1 hour if you want to look carefully. - Entrance fee is 150,000 VND per person.
  • This tomb was great to visit. It was very quiet and there werent too many people around. It was a very calming place. You can buy tickets at the entry. As you drive there you pass through the incense making village which is also a nice stop. It's quite an isolated place so it's best that you have transport organised.
  • Beautiful Vietnamese history. ♿ Wheelchair-friendly place. Huge area to travel and always keep someone to push your wheelchair. You can use 6-seater free electric buggies that are available to travel around the main roads. Some places are not wheelchair accessible but you can travel with someone's help. Disabled toilets are very clean. Always travel with someone, who can help you. Beautiful Vietnam Hue castle. I really recommend it to wheelchair travelers. You have to spend a full day covering the attractions. Always ask staff to help. Wheelchair people can't travel to the Some areas, but you can cover the 75% with your helper. Always use the google translate app to talk with them. Thanks
  • If you only visit one of the 3 main tombs this is the one. Nice temple, you can throw food for the fishes… won’t change your life for sure but worth visiting.
