It was raining and misty but we still enjoyed this tour. I guess the mist added a kind of Nostalgic feel to the place. I'm glad it was cool and was nice to just appreciate the beautiful trees and flowers.

We used this visit as part of a 2 day ticket with the Citadel. We took a taxi who came and waited for us to view Ming Mang tomb and kai Dinh. It was nice to see the countryside and to visit two different tombs the Ming Mang was most beautiful as there was more parkland. We also visited the... More

We visited two of the Nguyen tombs - Khai Dinh and Minh Mang. Our advise was that most of the other tombs were either quite similar in architectural style to one or other of these - or were not reall worth the effort. We were very happy with our selection and chosen way of viewing (car and driver, not boat)...definitely... More

A package ticket bought from the Citadel in Hue give you access to 4 sights over 2 days for 360,000d - the citadel and 3 tombs. It's a a bit much to try to visit all 4 in one day. We visited the citadel first, and then hired a car with driver to visit the 3 tombs the next day.... More

If you want to understand what Hue was like before the war you must do a daytrip visiting some of the royal tombs which remained undamaged by bombs

Do not miss this tomb. Outside area is largely stone, and with great detailed stone carving works. But once entering the royal tomb building at the top, you will be startle with all these gold decorations. Impressive.

A guide will explain why thi tomb is within the mountainous valley, and how the tomb was secret to stop looting, but a bit special with its statuary, and great new toilet facilities for westerners.

Stop here after your visit of the Citadel - on your way back to your accomodation or back to Danang. Once you have visited the Citadel, this site will make much more sense. Quite beautifully decorated inside

Lots of stairs but worthwhile, to the tomb of the controversial king. The build led to the death of many of the workers to create his resting place. Imported materials from around the world. Nice view of the mountains from atop.
