1h walking or 30min with bike. A taxi will charge you 100k vnd to go there and there is not charge for waiting. The temple is very nice and very green. Many parts in construction when we arrived.

One of the quieter and smaller tombs that we visited but enjoyable for that reason . Very peaceful and restful. You were able to feed the fish which resulted in a frenzy that I have never seen before.

It's good, but in very bad shape and dangerous when wet. There are really only a few spots of real interest but very spread out. Back in The day, this must have been very imoressive. Entrance was about 7 bucks

One of the highlights when visiting the old imperial city of Hué. The complex was constructed during the second half of the 19th century and still leaves several mysteries. One of the less important emperors. Admire the garden, the buildings, pools... a place to remember...More

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.
