To me this is the most fascinating emperor's tomb in Hue. Compact detailed and colourful mosaics and engravings. Take a slow walk and see and enjoy all the Dragon features. Worth while to visit and a must see destination

All the tombs are near each other and to Hue city, at most 10-15km each leg. We paid 550k for a driver to take us to three tombs and wait 30min for us at each, about 3 hours total.
