This tomb is very beautiful, the inside is covered in mosaics. There a quite a few steps but well worth a visit. Apparently the tomb took 11 years to build & Khai Dinh was not a popular emperor because he raised taxes to fund his...More

Different stairs lead toward different levels. Everything was made of concrete, black. Statues greet the visitors. The tomb itself (highest level) is a marvel: the inside is completely decorated with mosaic: pieces of pottery, jars, bottles. A jewel.

Khai Dinh Tomb is influenced by French and Chinese culture. The buildings and stairs were made of concrete (not marble). I wondered if it meant modernism. The walls inside the building were decorated by mosaic (made of pieces of pottery or glass bottles). I believe...More

All the tombs are near each other and to Hue city, at most 10-15km each leg. We paid 550k for a driver to take us to three tombs and wait 30min for us at each, about 3 hours total.
