Whether you enjoy a visit to sites such as these can be coloured by your perspective. I absolutely enjoyed my visit to Vietnam, respect Vietnamese culture and I am interested in Vietnamese history, but found it difficult to visit sites such as this and not question how a relatively recent ruler could spend so much money to build an extensive...

Among 4 most famous tombs in Hue, this tomb of Tu Duc is the most beautiful, poetic and tranquil. It brings about a sense of true peacefulness and harmony that Hue is known for. The palace and tomb are ok but the atmosphere and scenery are superb. Best visited in the morning to avoid group tours.

Visited as part of tour - wasn't feeling too great at the time so missed some of the history about the place but what I did listen was interesting about the king and his life. Very calming place it was very quiet when went, which added to peacefulness this place exuded - apart from one building which was under restoration... More

Enjoyed walking the grounds, and even though there was alot of restoration work, you can imagine the grandeur when it was first built. They were draining the lake when we were there, but once the restoration work is complete, this attraction will be truly spectacular!

This attraction closed at 5.30pm, be sure you check the opening hours when you are doing your itinerary. We were lucky enough to reach here by 4.45pm and spent 45 mins walking around and get the glimpse of this tomb's masterplan.

We visited with a guide which made it worthwhile as she explained the king's life, etc. to us. Without the guide I don't think I would have been that impressed with the visit. A lot of construction right now.

I visited the 4 tombs of the Huong river (perfum river) by moto bike. You have easy access to the tombs. A good way to visit them all for 5 dollars. You have to pay 100.000 dongs at every tombs. They are beautiful, a very serene atmosphere is present except for the Tu duc tomb. Almost the all site is... More
