This is one of three tombs that's on the combo ticket with the Imperial City, and one on the tour group circuit. For that reason, we went early to avoid crowds. We drove ourselves there by motorbike and got there around 8:30am, and had the...More

A good trip if you like walking in a calm surrounding with gorgeous views. A tip is to actually read the signs when walking around the area. It gives you a much wider perspective on what it is you're seeing.

Yet another spectacular Temple. They seem to have created something of a design of making them across the current Capital City of Hue. Not simply the size and scope that impressed, but far more the imagination required being constantly improving and improving the construction and...More

There are a lot of stairs up to this tomb, but worth the climb, and the view is good. This tomb is very ostentatious as was the king, some very unusual decorating techniques. Enjoyed looking at all the decoration intricacies

The absolute best element of Tu Duc is undoubtedly the amount of lakes, landscaped water and areas features created between the beautiful buildings to commemorate Tu Duc's reign. The structures may not be as spectacular as Khai Dinh or perhaps Minh Mang, although the standard...More

Nice, but extremely similar to a large amount of other tombs. The gardens and lake have been beautiful, though it was a difficult walk as the pavement area, is looking for maintenance. Go in case you've the time or maybe you really like history, old...More

Emperor Tu Doc Mausoleum is divided into a Temple area and a Tomb area set in a picturesque setting that include a small lake, lilyponds, etc.. It a beautiful and quiet place to visit. The biggest noise came from the cicadas buzzing the day away.

This tomb has a really nice layout. We liked this tomb a lot as it gave also our little daughter some areas which she found intersting. Some areas, like the tomb itself do not provide much shade when the sun ist up

The fresh air in the hot humid sun above Hue refreshed my memories of Manila. I love looking at the cods swimming with delight in the lagoon. I was thinking of getting my feet on the water for a foot spa experience.

Yes they are, the whole area is open and the Tomb it's self is in an open area but not spectacular for photos. The surrounding areas are very photogenic so a camera is a must.
