The royal tombs were an interesting stop. I loved all the little statues. We were told that the king wasn’t buried there. They hired criminals to bury the king and once he was buried, they killed criminals so no one ever could find the body...More

It is on the banks of the Perfume River. This is one of many Imperial Thoms of the emperors of the Nguyen dynasty. It is beautiful structures and a good insight into the history of the Vietnamese dynasties.

We were taken to two of the Royal Tombs, both quite different in their structure, the tombs of 2nd and 12th. Amazing buildings, grounds and scenery a must to visit another slice of Vietnamese history which is great to explore.

This is a must see if you are in Hue. You will need a guide so that you can fully appreciate the history. There are a variety of tombs and monuments. Go either early or late in the day as it gets very hot.

As it was a 15 minute walk from our hotel we headed to the Mausoleum/ Tomb of Thiệu Trị one afternoon, to find it absolutely deserted, and slightly tumbledown, which added to it's peaceful atmosphere. There was no staff or entrance free and you are...More

I recommend that you hire a taxi for half a day to visit 2 or 3 tombs. There are seven royal tombs. If you wish to visit more than three tombs, you must do this one more time. Over 2 half days you can visit five or six... More

How long to spend in Hue? It depends on who you are and what you want to see. Many visitors spend only one day in Hue. For me, this is not enough. We had five days in Hue and we managed to see many places, but there were... More
