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

What can one say about an ancient palace grounds in a review save that it was gorgeous, serene, and majestic, with many buildings to walk through (some being restored when we visited). The lake has a particularly idyllic island on it. It was a visual...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

This tomb was built from 1864 to 1867 and is a temple in the valley of Huong Ba Village. It is perhaps the most captivating temple of the Nguyen Emperor. It included around 50 areas for worshipping and relaxing.

The tomb was located in somewhat of a forest and it felt very serene and quiet. We were the first few people there and it added to the nice and calm atmosphere. Buildings were well maintained and very nice.

The beautiful scenery and spacious area. Love the peaceful here. I just don't want to see these buildings are rebuilt. It may lose the sacred of the historic site.

A very beautiful resting place. Stunning grounds set around a very beautiful lake. This was another highlight of Hue. A sad history for this king but his final resting place is a sanctuary.

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.
