The final resting-place of this Nguyen Dynasty emperor and scholar was built before his death. A lake, pavilion and theatre still exist on the grounds.

Stunning tomb complex centred around lakes and rest houses. You can imagine going back into history and the imperial kings and queens socialising by the lake. Lovely to walk the grounds - amazing work on restoring the tombs.

Another royal tomb. Another pagoda. But yet again very interesting to go and see. So much to see around Hué. Lovely grounds too to walk around in with plenty of shady spots which was needed!

A bit of a trek from the city but worth a visit. Very scenic with lakes and impressive architecture, there are also musical performances with traditional dress and instruments (free).

Beautiful grounds and very peaceful. Go with a guide to get all the fascinating details - very interesting place to visit once the history is explained

Advisable to travel with local tour guide. Wear a pair of comfortable shoes or sport shoes, there are steps (uneven) and walking. Spend at least an hour.

This tomb is set over a large area around a large lake. Many of the buildings are in the process of being rebuilt. Pleasant wandering around the buildings which have been rebuilt or renovated.

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.
