It's one of royal tombs in Hue. Although the weather was so hot when i came there- beautiful, quite, real royal of Vietnam. You should visit the tomb early morning or late afternoon. It worth to visit.

I am surprised that some people say that they were disappointed. What did they expect? This tomb is like many other tombs, temples and historical buildings: partly broken and the Vietnamese are busy with rebuilding parts of it. None the less, the tomb is surrounded by a beautiful park and all buildings can be visited. We were done within one... More

This site defiantly gives an insight into ancient Vietnam. Lovely to walk around and enjoy the history.

I went here last March as a part of a city tour throught Hue. This is a huge site, with a pond and a lot of greenery. Sadly there was some reconstruction going on when we went there. But we still enjoyed our visit.

Without undermining the value of any other site in Hue, but unlike the imperial Palace this tomb is the most preserved to its original condition in Hue, if not in the whole of Vietnam. We took a scooter for the day and combines its visit with her nearby tombs and pagodas, was one of our best experiences in Vietnam ...... More

Although there is a lot of restoration going on, this tomb complex is probably the most impressive in Hue. The peaceful lake with it's man-made island is a beautiful and should not be missed. Entry fee was around USD5. Because the grounds are so extensive, even with a lot of other tourists around, you didn't feel crowded. Worth the vist.

The tomb was the last one we saw of the day, all the tombs are 100,000 to enter and I feel it is worth paying to see them all. Tu Tuc tomb is big and there are lots of areas to explore. This temple is very old, and doesn't seem as well maintained as the others, but it is very... More

This is probably the 'must see' tomb of all in Hue for its size and that it was also a functioning palace used by the emperor while alive, in addition to being his tomb. The grounds are really beautiful, though much of it is in ruins and slowly being rebuilt. The most tourist cheese outside of the Citadel is here,... More
