A little out of the way, but we found it enthralling, even though the tomb itself was undergoing renovation!

It was interesting to see how differently Emperor Tu Doc wanted his mausoleum built to that envisaged by Emperor Minh Mang. The guide book said that it had better balance, but we both preferred the space and peace of Minh Mang's tomb. It was good...More

Of the 3 tombs we visited around Hue this was my least preferred one, even though still worth a visit. King Tu Doc was a romantic and it shows. Very beautiful, informal gardens and landscape. The tombs and other building are nicely decorated but maybe...More

This site captures the essence of a once great empire. The grandeur of the tomb itself and the quiet setting, along with the intricate adornments are worth a visit.

We came to Hue to visit the tombs and the citadel. It’s def worth a visit. The guide explained how the location for the tombs are chosen so there’s a lot of history behind it

Yes they are, the whole area is open and the Tomb it's self is in an open area but not spectacular for photos. The surrounding areas are very photogenic so a camera is a must.
