This tomb is near our homestay, It took only 10 mins by bicycle. This tomb is romantic & has a lot of legends behind. I like the lake in this tomb where you can sit down and watch Hue music performances.

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.
