The place looks very shabby like nobody takes care of it (what do they do with the entry money which you have to pay?). There is not that much to see, we expected definitiv more! (looks nicer on all the pictures...) The ride by bike from town was a good exercise but not worth the way to get to the... More

Beautiful grounds and unique tile mosaics that are so well maintained. I especially liked the area, because it is so unique to countless other tombs, shrines and palaces I've seen in SEA. Recommended!

Even in the drizzle, the emperor's tombs are magnificent. It is worth taking the tour as the tombs are far out of the city and you are given enough time to do them justice. Plus the lunch stop was excellent.

we visited tow royal tombs in hue, one of minh mang and the other of khah dinh. both these tombs are so different from each other- khah dinh's tomb being very flamboyant and the least traditional and minh mang's tomb being really huge and very tradition yet most impressive. despite the difference , the royal tombs definitely demand a visit...

The tomb of Gia Long was a highlight of our visit to the Imperial Tombs. The trip out there took us on a drive along meandering lanes through small villages and rural fields. Rounding a corner you spy a pair of columns rising up on the banks of a lagoon and soon you arrive at the tomb complex. Such a... More

I thought the tombs were ok, and I probably would have enjoyed more if I hadn't felt I got taken. We just came from the Phong Nha caves and for the money, a much better experience. And after the caves, the steps at the tombs were nothing, although I imagine a hot, sunn, humid day would lead me to think... More

The royal tombs of Hue is definitely one of the highlights of this historical city. The tombs only contain the emperors of the Nguyen Dynasty. There were apparently 13 rulers but only seven have actual tombs. Three are very popular because of the ornate and extreme architectural style for that period. Some of the tombs are in ruins and not... More
