If you are in Hue and only have 2 hours, skip the other tombs and visit this one. It is the most interesting one.

Out of the 3 three tombs we visited, this in many ways was the least impressive; however, the surroundings including a lake are very nice to stroll around and there is also the Queen's tomb to visit. Definitely worth seeing. 100,000D entry.

We arrived early enough to avoid the tourist. It was quiet as we sat by the lake and just enjoyed the view. The tomb itself is simple and it was a nice visit.

This was a great time to go as we almost had the whole place to ourselves. The entrance was 100,000D but you can save money by getting a group ticket. The place was very peaceful and a great to learn a little history of Tu Duc. If you time it well you can listen to some information from guides taking... More

The tomb of the king is quite impressive. On top of that, you will also get to see tomb of the queen as well. And as a great complimentary, the surrounding landscape is just as beautiful.

This is a must see site in Hue. It is user friendly in that everything is clearly marked. Best seen as part of a package with at least one other tomb such as Ming Manh's

Enjoyed our visit to Tu Duc, 4th King of Nguyen royalty. Built between 1864 -1867. Some parts of this was blocked for maintenance by the time we visit in Nov but still worth going.

Came here on my second day in Hue, a busy tourist attraction, the architecture and landscape made it worth the drive up and the 100k VND entry fee. It's seeped in Vietnamese culture and history and it's quite a pleasant walk around it. I spent about 35-40 minutes walking around. It's one of those must sees in Hue! Add it... More

Covers a large area although a lot of it is quite run down and been left to go. Some lovely tranquil areas where you could sit.
