We visited Khai Dinh Tomb, Mihn Mang and Tu Duc. I believe the other two are more beautiful but Tu Duc is still worth a visit if you have time. The area around the lake is under construction but there are some other buildings to see and the grounds are nice.

Another popular place of visit to see the a burial spot of one of the last rulers of Vietnam. With a lot of history and design architecture. A local guide will add more knowledge to the visit

Definitely interesting sight to visit. The tomb is also quite near Hue city which is easy to access. However it's a bit touristic coz vendors surrounded the entrance.

Take comfy shoes and plenty of water. Take a camera worth going to but not if you are short of time. Very hot

The grandeur of the whole site is beyond anything I ever saw: it expressed a great respect for death: going from the 'minor wives' over the 'first wive' to the lover of the king (only one with a temple to dream...)

We had a guide to explain what we were exploring and some of the history which certainly made it more interesting. Tu Duc had it built during his lifetime and he spent a lot of time there, relaxing, hunting and working. The gardens and buildings are being restored slowly so it will get better but it's already a tranquil garden... More

Large complex to walk around , more like a park with some things to visit on the way. As part of a tour it's a nice place to see , here again to see it all you'll need to have enough time. entrance fee: 80k

It seemed a little morbid to visit these tombs, but they were more like mansions. This tomb was a great place to take pictures and feel the cultural history of Hue. Our tour guide was really bad, but the place spoke for itself.

This a large complex to walk around with many steps and sections to visit. It is well maintained with good examples of stone masonry and moat work.
