Beautiful and serene

The largest of the tombs. A beautiful lake and sweeping trees make for a serenely beautiful place. It was so nice taking a walk around.

Very interesting tomb which is quite different than Tu Duc & Kai Dinh tombs. Beautiful setting with a lake & canals.

I went here last March as a part of a city tour through Hue. This is a huge site, but it looks very nice with all the old buildings and the greenery.... very peaceful. It's also looks nice on pictures.

Stopped out and saw the tomb and walked up the steps. It a nice landmark to see a little outside of town. Short visit only as there isn't much out there.

After what seemed like a very circuitous route and wondering whether the taxi driver knew the way we finally got there. There's no entrance fee. The buildings were well kept.

We went end of April. It was boiling. Try go early morning or late afternoon. We opted for a car there instead of a river cruise. This was down to the heat, and the aircon was massively welcome!
