This is one of the coolest structures I've seen in Hue. Def check it out! If you can, have a motorbike tour as well, it makes the entire experience more fun while seeing the surrounding areas :). There are lots of steps so make sure you can climb stairs.

One of the few interesting things of Hue is this place. We rented a bike and went there. The road is OK, no major drama. The fee is a bit high but hey, it's Vietnam. You pay. Anyways, it is recommended. It's interesting and a good way of burn a few hours.

The trip was a combination of boat / car trip and took about 3.5-4 hours door to door. We bought a combination ticket... More

If in Hue this is part of the must-see group of imperial sites (Ming Mang, Citadel, Forbidden City. It is hard to separate this out. Lots of stairs to climb, but certainly worth it. The grounds, set in a forest with both man-made lakes and natural water flow makes the setting particularly lovely. The soldier statuary guarding the walkway is... More

We visited the mausoleums of Tu Doc and Khai Dinh. Both interesting structures set in beautiful grounds (well you'd expect that from dynastic rulers). Visiting them with our guide gave a good insight into that part of history and practice. There are story boards to help you along. Quite some way out of town.

With the temperatures in the mid 90's and humidity to match, I wasn't too happy to see several flights of steep steps ahead! However, the extra effort was rewarded with a gallery of life-sized stone soldiers. Then up another flight of steps to the top for the big surprise. The Royal Tomb is decorated in the most oved unusual and... More
