A really pretty, manageable tomb to see. The compound is green, the tomb buildings are attractive and quite well restored.

Visited both Minh Mang and Tu Duc tombs. Both are well worth a walk around and can be covered in just over half a day in total. Tu Duc site has a lot more atmosphere/mystical feel to it than Minh Mang as it has not undergone the extensive maintenance/renovation of the latter. Best to visit Minh Mang site first. Minh... More

The taxi ride from the center of Hue was comfortable and affordable. The weather was "good" in relative tropical term for the month of June, i.e. high 80's F, humidity fair but not overwhelming. Still, if you go, come prepared with hats, shorts, light T-shirts, and a good size bottle of water, the cooler the better. The surrounding landscape, a... More

Very grand layout. Maintained very well. Massive area, lovely walking around with nice gardens and lakes. On the day we visited, it was hot and humid so bring a big bottle of water. A must see if your in Hue.

This was my favourite visitor attraction in the city. Walk through the story of death and afterlife in the tomb of emperor Minh Mang. The emperor who built the imperial city lies in this vast country tomb complete with temples guardians and servants quarters. Worth the trip out of town.

You should visit this tomb because it was the most beautiful places in Hue. We took a dragon boat for a half day to visit some places and finished at this tomb. Highly recommend.

The tombs are set about 15 minutes outside Hue and are a series of mausoleums each with their own features. The actual tomb is behind lice poked doors but there is enough to see in the accompanying park set around a lake. You' ll need plenty of water as it's a lot of ground to cover but it's well worth...

Rent a motor bike and venture out to this tomb! A bit hard to find but the journey was half the fun! We got a little lost but ended up crossing this very cool floating bridge on our motor bikes trying to find the place.
