Covers a large area although a lot of it is quite run down and been left to go. Some lovely tranquil areas where you could sit.

This was a great time to go as we almost had the whole place to ourselves. The entrance was 100,000D but you can save money by getting a group ticket. The place was very peaceful and a great to learn a little history of Tu Duc. If you time it well you can listen to some information from guides taking... More

The tomb of the king is quite impressive. On top of that, you will also get to see tomb of the queen as well. And as a great complimentary, the surrounding landscape is just as beautiful.

This is a must see site in Hue. It is user friendly in that everything is clearly marked. Best seen as part of a package with at least one other tomb such as Ming Manh's

Enjoyed our visit to Tu Duc, 4th King of Nguyen royalty. Built between 1864 -1867. Some parts of this was blocked for maintenance by the time we visit in Nov but still worth going.

Came here on my second day in Hue, a busy tourist attraction, the architecture and landscape made it worth the drive up and the 100k VND entry fee. It's seeped in Vietnamese culture and history and it's quite a pleasant walk around it. I spent about 35-40 minutes walking around. It's one of those must sees in Hue! Add it... More

The complex consists of a temple and the king’s tomb. Our guide said the king designed the complex himself. It has a serene walk along a river, maybe because we got there when others are having lunch. Apparently the peak tourist hour is after 3pm. The king’s autobiography was carved on a stone stele. When you get to the tomb... More

Amazing arches and walkways. The old faded colors on the masonry is beautiful. Facinating to walk around.
