We are impressed by this places not only because its history but also its architecture and its balance when buiding. Had to confess that the tomb is so nice which is like a place to rest for living people more than a tomb.

Interesting to see, this is a big site with lots to see but the signage is not great. There is another tomb down the road which is just as interesting.

Tranquil place to visit and learn about Vietnamese culture. It's quite grand and not what you'd expect when visiting a tomb.

If possible visit in summer! It is a beautifull place but when the gliwers and lotus fliwers on the water, the three's are vivid it would be 10 times more amazing! Worth the visit also in winter tho!

Tomb of Tu Duc is a not just a tomb. It has garden, small castle, gates, and many more too see. The thing is that this is not the actual burial site of King Tu duc. Admission is 100k vnd.

It was nice to see the tomb, but it is definitely not a must see. You need to pay for parking motor or bike, as well the entrance is quite high.

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.
