Wonderful slice of Vietnam's history

Spectacular peek into the past. The Royal Tombs have such a breadth of interesting buildings and scenery, it was well worth the visit

Easily accessible with taxi or private car at low cost. Amazing architecture and room for exploration. I wouldn't recommend trying them with bicycle unless you are on strict budget. The distances are not small and the roads go up to hills. With the heat it's hard !

It's worth visiting this tomb - beautiful, tranquil (even in the heat of summer). By digging into Vietnam's past, you understand its present.

A worth while visit along with the other kings tomb's. Spent several hours exploring the further reaches and sitting on the royal jetty in contemplation. Fortunately no large crowds for our visit.

The royal tombs are definitely worth a visit! Loved the mystery of the places and how beautiful they are! A lot of walking indeed and some have a lot of stairs to climb! Take water - especially when it is hot and humid. I took many photos to make sure you camera is ready!!!

The design & architecture are what make this a must visit. Do it as part of a tour to get the most out of the historic significance. Great to wander around & explore.

We did a day tour with Thang Long City tours of the Citadel and the Royal Tombs. It's interesting to get a bit of the history of this country and the architecture is interior design is pretty fantastic and worth a look.

We visited this along with the citadel and pagoda. We went to this one first and it was interesting but expensive entry fee compared to other places. I would have spent more time at citadel and not wasted my money here.

I am sure glad I took a Hue tour which took me to many different tombs. It is really amazing how these royals lived. A phrase that was repeated by the tour guide was " life is short, but death is eternal" Apparently these royals visited their tombs often when they were were alive. There is much history surrounding these... More
