Before arriving to Hue, we were told of the many tombs, but to only pick a couple. I was glad we chose this one. It takes about an hour to walk around, and you are free to wander. There's various areas and architectural pieces to look at. The most relaxing worshipping areas that overlook the lakes. I got some fab... More

Although it is called his tomb, if you also want to see where and how the last emperor of Vietnam lived come see his playground and final resting place. Good to take a guide as well to explain the areas if you do not have a guide book. A large beautiful estate surrounded by water, which he boated in, saw... More

The grounds of this tomb are beautiful and are a lovely place to stroll. Tu Duc was the 2nd Nguyen emperor and it is said he had 100 concubines. This would have been a very nice place to visit in the spring and summertime. There's a beautiful pavillion on the side of a small lake where the emperor is said... More

We visited this first rather than after the citadel as our guide suggested this as quieter earlier. A 10-15 minute car ride to quite different scenery. Some in good condition and newly restored, other parts a bit faded and in need of attention. You can imagine this would be a lovely place in the summer to write poetry and entertain... More

Far from the main city so an easy rider or a taxi will be needed. It takes about 10-20 mins to get here but once you're there its in such great condition that you wouldn't believe how old it was. Definitely worth a visit

This grand park on the outskirts of Hue is a nice little getaway from the city. It was peaceful and quiet when we went, at around 4:30.

While it is only $5 to enter, it is the least spectacular of the tombs on the typical tour. This is the one to miss if you are trying to save a few bucks.

This world heritage site is simply stunning. I've visited here about 8 times over the past 3 years coming to Vietnam on business. The site is being restored and it is pleasing to see the work progressing. I tend to come early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the tour busses. Week days are best. You... More

After you visit the Citadel you can go out of town and visit the mausoleums. Wouldn't it be nice if you can pre-build your final resting place...well theVietnamese kings did just that and they are amazing structures so far out of town. I recommend this visit after your day at the Citadel
