The history of the tomb is very interesting - at one point serving as offices of the emporer. There are original documents framed on the wall. It's very peaceful, even with small Tour Groups milling about.

This is an impressive complex built which was originally used as a palace before becoming the Emporers resting place. It is in a beautiful and peaceful environment with a number of lakes/ponds adding to the tranquility of the place

Of all Tombs in Hue, I would recommend to visit this one. It is well restored and placed in beautiful environment. The lake was men made -a lot of wokers died when digging it.

The tomb complex is very big, peaceful with Koi ponds. Very quiet when we visited. Many renovations are still going on.

We went with a manual named Mr Nam who describe all of the story of the tomb to us which is intriguing. The doc had no kids of his so he wrote his story to begin the tomb of his. Certainly well worth a trip...More

We did three of the eight tombs today and had a great time. The tombs and their history and how the emperors and the court lives were all explained by our guide today.

Tu Duc was obviously a poet dreamer and those elements of his character are mirrored in the tomb complex of his. The road winds around, as opposed to the straight orientation of some other tomb complexes, amongst ponds, channels, a pleasure pavilion, and edge temples....More

The setting is stunning, although complex it isn't different. The way in which it's presented, with a number of night one-story houses surrounding a core courtyard are extremely common. I discovered the Tomb of Khai Dinh being extremely strange and for that reason a lot...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.

You already had a lot of suggestions. We had our trip booked by our travel agency, vietnam-rejser.dk ... They booked Ngoc from DMZ travels. The trip included private driver and lunch
