Did a day trip which included 3 tombs, the citadel and the Pagoda. Found the Khai Dinh tomb the most interesting with a lot of artifacts to see and you see his actual tomb, which is amazing. The Tu Duc and Minh Mang weren't so elaborate.

Do a city tour through Hue. You visit all the important old 'tombs' and you get a guide with it too.

Beat the Heat...much cooler...less stress....we went out on a river boat.

The location of some of these tombs would make Indiana Jones struggle to find them - take a tour. We did 3 tombs and they were all excellent in their own way - beautiful lakes, landscaped gardens and grand buildings - all worth the bouncy journey and heat to see.

We hired a motorbike and drove to all the temples, they are all fairly close but we were glad we had a map and directions to find them all as they're quite difficult to find. Make sure you take something to cover your shoulders. I had something in my bag and there are many people of both sexes around the... More

I thought they were beautiful and the countryside was also nice. About 10 miles out of town and easy with a driver or if you are fit, could bike this pretty easily as well

The Royal tombs are a must see in Hue. There are three in excellent condition and each is unique in style, reflecting Vietnam in different periods. I recommend either going on a tour or hiring a car and tour guide to best understand both the tombs and the context.

There were 12 Kings in this dynasty and we saw 2 of the 12 tombs on our tour. So glad we saw them, as they aren't damaged from the wars and really interesting and beautiful. Can't comment on the other tombs and know that only 10 of the Kings were buried in Vietnam - most are in this area. We... More

The Khai Dinh Tomb is quite far out of Hue, about a 10-15 minute motorbike ride. Its on the way to Minh Mang temple. I rode my own motorbike, but they're plenty of guides available to take you there. The temple has amazing views and is built beautifully. Definitely worth a look.
