There are so many tombs to visit in and around Hue, this is my favorite. This emperor was one of the most popular and longest reining, even built his own tomb before his death.

Minh Mang Tomb locates in a huge area where you need to spend around 2 hours walk. It's cooling & very peaceful to walk in such a place with full of trees and ancient temples.

We missed the main entrance and ended up going in through the side. There is a guy who obviously knows that tourists will end up going past the front gates and waves you into his cafe but he was really nice. You can leave your scooter or bike there for free if you buy a drink. The grounds were impressive... More

We spent a week in Hue, and after being a little disappointed with the Imperial Citadel (see my separate review), we decided to look for other worthwhile sites to visit. We took our rented scooters out of town and decided to head to Ming Mang Tomb. We really didn't have much of a clue as to where we were going,... More

worth the ride out to the tomb -- large with well kept gardens/temples, spent 2 hours just walking around and taking it in. best part is that it's quiet with barely any visitors.

Take your time here, plenty to see and well preserved, once you have finished exploring the different buildings, rest in the gardens by the lake and enjoy the peace.

Beautiful grounds and buildings with a real serene feeling. Try to get here at 8am in the morning before anyone else arrives - walking through the many buildings from "life" to the after - life you should get emotional feeling of the celebration of life and death. Looking back from the after - life bridges you get the feeling life... More

This is very nice and should not be missed - unless you have zero interest in culture. Really, really, nice.
