With stunning views and a beautiful mosaics this is a truly fabulous place to visit within Hue. The tomb is beautifully decorated and placed in an amazing location. This is well worth a visit and afterwards I would highly recommend a boat ride down the river for more stunning views

We went by boat down the Perfume river to visit the tombs, transferring to bus at the end (the tombs are not on the shore of the river) and returning by bus. Each tomb was different. Each had a stone guard of honor - sculpted warriors or officials in a row. Although the details on each were not intricate, the... More

This magical place is definitely worth the visit - though it is smaller than the Minh Mang one, the location is superb. Do come here, but come earlier in the morning, as at around 10 am it was already extremely hot.

Impressive layout, lots of stairs and beautiful interior make this tomb a cut above the others. Most well preserved tomb. All tombs now cost 80,000VND/pax to enter for foreigners.

I knew very little about the history of the royals in Vietnam but upon visiting the royal tombs I was able to find out the lives of the royal families. My favorite was the tomb of Lang Khai Dinh a mix of old world and new world architecture (be ready to climb some stairs, apparently the royal families liked stairs.)... More

Went on a motorcycle tour as a part of a group for the day to visit villages & the tombs. Definitely worth the trip for history and the scenery. We also tacked on a perfume river boat ride back closer to town. I'd recommend paying a little extra for a guide as you'll see much more and learn so much... More

This attraction is interesting if your have time in Hue. However there are other attractions more impressive. the day of our visit was extremely hot and humid so ensure you come prepared with shade cover and water. Our tour guide in Hue and Hoi An was very, very good so his knowledge and stories about this attraction as well as... More
