While all of the Hue emperors' tombs that we visited were great, Minh Mang's was my personal favorite, with large lakes/moats surrounding the huge burial mound. Very tranquil and elegant.

Our trip to the Tomb of Minh Mang - King of Viet Nam was very interesting. We had an excellent guide who provided detailed information about the King, his place in history and the society that he ruled. The mausoleum is very ornate and beautiful and the gardens and lake quite beautiful. We visited as part of a tour that... More

This grant tomb is on the edge of town but worth the trip to see the interesting temples and spacious quiet setting. These tombs are much more intact than the citadel.

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Hue. Magnificent area where the tomb and all the different buildings is located. A guided tour is recommended to get the full history of the empirial Vietnam, we hired a professional guide via the hotel. This is the number one site to visit in Hue, I think.

This is number one for a reason. You walk through many temples until you get to the tomb. There are many water features and grassy areas and places to sit and be still.

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
