We had a brilliant private guide who told us about each emperor and his era and family as we wandered through these amazing structures with their water features and intricate carvings. Not to be missed.....but half a day is enough!!

A great site with a lot to see. Could spend a lot of time here to really see everything. Some good restoration work going on and detail on the history

Beautiful walk in peaceful surroundings. Can certainly see why the king came there to visit. The tombs are interesting and I enjoyed walking through the ruins

We saw two tombs of the five available. Ask your guide or someone knowledgeable which tombs are under restoration at the time of your visit as the restoration while admirable detracts from your visit. Also try to visit when the hordes of bus tourists are not there. Regarding the visit, regardless off your religious (or not) persuasion, remember that these... More

Impressive and it keeps going for a while, so be ready to walk up some steps. The whole complex is quite large and very well crafted and seems to be holding up quite well against the merciless weather of the region. I would advise to get here early so your pictures don't have hundreds of tourists in them.

The different tombs were magnificent, went well beyond my expectations. Well preserved and interesting to visit. Such important pieces of history and rather recent as well, was impressed and interested to explore.

There is no doubt that this is one of the most grand tombs in Central Vietnam. Construction continued well after Khai Dinh's death, cost a huge amount of money, and although there are strong beliefs that he was a bit of a puppet king, due to being control by the French Government, try to forget your conscience on these matters...

We booked a half day city tour -regardless where you book or what you pay, you end up with the same tour, either by bus or by boat. We recommend everyone taking not the full day tour: the citadel and pagode are nearby, you can better visit this on your own instead of being herded around. We took advantage of... More
