This tomb is not convenient to access. We had a private driver and guide so no problems. Saw some tour buses. But this is not in Hue, so you have to find a way to get there. This is probably best visited with a tour guide or a good tour book or you could miss a lot of background information... More

Lovely, peaceful place to visit with lots of greenery that would be exquisite in the right season. Buildings are interesting. Quite an impressive complex for a tomb. Worth a visit.

Beautiful grounds and temples. Very well-kept. Less visited by tourists than the Tomb of Khai Dinh, or larger so it seems that way, which makes for a nicer, quieter and more peaceful visit. If you do it on your own the entrance fee is 40,000 dong. It's pretty easy to find on a motorbike and a nice drive out there.... More

Very impressive grounds and several nice buildings; nice to walk around even in the pouring rain! Feels a little unloved which is a shame for such a historic site. the Tomb itself is housed behind a huge walled area only opened up once a year. Lang Khai Dinh (listed under Hue Province) is smaller, just up he road, and more... More

We hired a car to take us to visit the tombs. This was my favourite because of its setting. It is very peaceful and the gardens and lake are quite beautiful.

Tomb Minh Mang was on the largest complex of the three main tombs in the area. The grounds are very beautiful, with ponds and gardens that border the walkways. We enjoyed the tour.

This tomb was one of the many spread around Hue. Presently it is a bit of a walk from the parking lot to entrance which I think discourages some of the larger tour groups from visiting this tomb. The setting is very pastoral with a lovely park like atmosphere. It was not crowded which made the experience very pleasant.

Good layout. Take a guide to ensure that you get the necessary information about the place. We had a group tour of a few tombs, forbidden city etc. and that is recommended. For me a couple of royal tombs is plenty enough for a day but I'm maybe a philistine. Ming mang was a better one though.
