If you need a quite place for relaxing, you can visit this place. The lake in this tomb is so romantic and you can hear the bird cheeper. Three hours at this place is enough and you can travel to other places for food trip

Quite a way out of town, but worth it for the interesting set-up of the old style of tombs and the architecture. It is overall a bit neglected, though they are doing restoration work. The lake is attractive with a pavilion overlooking it where traditional music recitals take place - nice touch. There are good toilets available. Not suitable for... More

We can easily see the grandeur of the site, but ongoing reconstruction made it a bit difficult to appreciate. There's a lot of work to be done and since it was the only royal tomb we visited, we were a bit disappointed... Especially for the 120,000 VND they charge for the entrance...

Beautiful - Chinese influence is visible. In summer it is boiling - but well worth the walk around this and all the tombs. Take a private car - the bit extra gives you a rest in the aircon between tomb sites.

There is a lot of work happening here at the moment, and for that reason, if you were thinking of skipping a tomb, skip this one. It is very close to Hue, so easy to access, it covers a great area and is quite serene. Once the maintenance work is complete, will be wonderful!

we visited 3 tombs by private car. Tu duc was the closest to Hue and we thought the best. It took us a couple of hours to wander through at a very leisurely pace but could easily be explored in under one hour

take alittle extra time and for a couple of dollars we were dressed as royals and even had face make up on for some pictures with props- quite funny not something we would usually do, but our friends and family had a laugh when they seen it and later we were glad we did it

We just spent a good hour & a half here wandering around here even though it is 34 deg today. Lots of interesting old crumbling ruins & buildings in good repair as well. Worth the short drive & small enterance fee. Good to see the money going back into restoring or retains it. Some of the buildings were relatively cool... More
