“historical site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This emperor was one of the most popular and longest reining,even built his own tomb before his death. Covers huge tract of land with superb gardens,buildings for reflecting your inermost thoughts,quite a public place enjoyed by the locals for the beauty of the area. Also a place for short term camping.

“A bit of an oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you do the moto (or bicycle!) tour of the area around Hue, this is a must see, not because it is anything "great" per se, it really is just one more not so ancient attraction, but it does give you some insights into fairly recent Vietnamese history, and if you are on the tour, well, why not, but thats about it
Also, the gardens are very relaxing and fairly well maintained. Lots of places to sit and take in the buildings.

“A little out of Hue but worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

A little out of Hue but worth the visit to see an older tomb. It was very peaceful and our guide gave us an excellent explanation of the layout and architecture.

Beautiful site in which Minh Mang was buried. Locals and Vietnamese people get in for a discount than foreigners.
