Do not miss this tomb. Outside area is largely stone, and with great detailed stone carving works. But once entering the royal tomb building at the top, you will be startle with all these gold decorations. Impressive.

A guide will explain why thi tomb is within the mountainous valley, and how the tomb was secret to stop looting, but a bit special with its statuary, and great new toilet facilities for westerners.

Stop here after your visit of the Citadel - on your way back to your accomodation or back to Danang. Once you have visited the Citadel, this site will make much more sense. Quite beautifully decorated inside

Lots of stairs but worthwhile, to the tomb of the controversial king. The build led to the death of many of the workers to create his resting place. Imported materials from around the world. Nice view of the mountains from atop.

There are seven royal tombs in the vicinity of Hue, each one representing part of the Nguyen dynasty that lasted from the early-19th century to the mid-20th century. They often have similar design trends, such as the inclusion of temples and pavilions, stone sculptures of soldiers or mandarins, and a designated burial section.

First of all you need to know that the tombs are not close to each other. If you don't want to book a tour, take a taxi and book the 3-site-ticket (2 of 3 tombs have the same architecture). Really nice place to find your peace. :-)

Hue sets itself apart with the citadel, imperial palace, and the tombs. the city is friendly, feels rural and you can taste the history. the tombs are beautiful and worth the (short) trip
