I recommend renting a motorbike/scooter and visit the tombs by yourself as well as the pagoda. We liked the Khai Dinh the most.

My wife and i were lucky to have been on a cruise along the Vietnamese coast and this was one of the most beautiful excursions we did. The whole place exuded an air of calm and dignity. This is a must see.

This is great half day out. We booked a driver through Stop And Go travel for 3 hours and visited 2 tombs and the pagoda before catching the boat back to Hue. This was quite enough for one day as there are multitudes of steep steps and some beautiful scenery and ruins to wander through leisurely. This cost a mere... More

The Emperors tombs along with the Citadel are the reasons to be in Hue at all. They are most easily visited on the all day river then bus trip which usually takes in the top three tombs, Minh Mang, Thai Dinh & Tu Doc. Minh Mangs in particular is very impressive though all three are worth seeing.

Arranged a private tour with an English speaking guide, we went to the khai Dinh tombs and Tu Duc tombs before visiting the imperial palace and Thien Mu Pagoda. Was told that the Tu Duc tombs is very similar to the Ming Mang tomb therefore we've skipped that one, now I'm having minor regrets......

Nice place with beautiful tiled room, family relics and photographs, and impressive statuary and dragons. However, you must be able to climb steep stairs!

It's very nice to see Hue city. The complex of Hue Monument were so beautiful. But there're a lot of venders ask by for me, by for me postcard.

Beautiful place it's really worth it to go. If you have a little time I think this is the only tomb to go. The architecture is really nice and they put a lot of flower. Compare to other tombs the price is 80 000 VND it's maybe a lot compare to other because often they have park and take 1... More

We visited the three and each was so different from the other two. I initially thought oh no more boring tombs but not so, this is a worthwhile thing to do, particularly if you have spent time at the Imperial Palace.

Much better than what one might expect. Total serenity. Very impressive. The 2nd King's burial place reminded me of Bejing's Imperial City.
