this is the old tomb and is area of special architectural or historical interest, I like old and rule-breaking things, so i think Hue city and these tombs are interesting to me.

The tomb was worth going - no doubt about that! Spectacular beauty of nature and buildings. Felt like we were there by ourselves! It was inexpensive admission. Make sure you walk out the back of the rear temple to the three bridges and walk back around the pond.

This is a great place to visit if you like visiting temples, pagodas, and royalty sites. If you go with a tour guide, a trip to 5 of these sites will last all day — tough to do in the blazing sun here. Make sure you take an umbrella with a reflective inner lining.

My sister and I visited Ming Mang Tomb on the way to Hoi An on a motorbike tour. This tomb is quite out of the town center of Hue but beautiful! The tomb can only be seen once a year on the anniversary but scenic garden!

Well worth the visit to see this Emperors Tomb. Set in the middle of nowhere, it is an amazing insight into the wealth and history of the Vietnamese royal family.

Took private boat (an old lady and her family) and enjoyed a half day on the river. Minh Mang is a peaceful setting near the banks of the river 1 1/2 hours outside Hue. Well designed, symetrical layout in garden like setting in the shadow of mountains it is low key and spectacular oasis. Well worth the trip and $4... More

This was a really interesting Tomb as it was strongly influenced by the French colonisation, so it is opulent in comparison. There is a video running which gives you a great insight into the cost & building of the Tomb. I wasn't surprised to learn that the eyes of the dragons light up at night , however it was interesting... More

One of three tombs we saw on a day trip. Lovely and serene, gardens and buildings to walk through. Also lakeside benches where you can sit and dream. In one building there were red lacqured columns and doors which were very striking.
