While this all looks ancient its surprising that its so recently constructed. Great grounds but be warned if its a hot day take a shade umbrella as there are few places to hide from the sun. We bought a multi ticket for the tombs and vitadel which is cheaper.

The first thing I noted was how calm and peaceful the area is inside. The grounds are so well maintained. The vendors inside did not hassle but just basic water soft drink etc. A very blissful area to visit

The tomb of Tu Duc is located in a beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Moats and ponds with beautiful lotus flowers more give the impression of a park than of a burial site. these grounds also served as a villa to the emperor & Accommodations for family members are also on-site.

Calming gardens surrounding this Tomb adds to this being a very unique place. The Tomb acted as a working palace before being used as a tomp, which gives it a very special feel. If you only feel lige seeing one of the many tomps in Hue, this one comes highly recommended.

Don't get fooled upon arrival because of all the little, tourist shops, but, like the Ming Mah tomb, the tomb of Tu Duc is located in a beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Moats and ponds with beautiful lotus flowers more give the impression of a park than of a burial site. Apart from his future burial site, these grounds also served as... More

Its worth paying the price of 100.000 Dong. A nice green area with a lot to see. Take some water with you because in the Tomb everything is really expensive. There are some places where you an relaxe and enjoy the beauty of thise place.

Beautiful and peaceful tomb. We visited this with a local guide, this allow us to get more information about the king and the history of this tomb etc. Without a guide, this would be nothing but a nice garden with some interesting piece of architecture. Still worth the visit - guide or not guide.

This tomb is set in a very lovely park - worth going just for a walk around. The tomb is very somber but has a certain atmosphere and calming aura.
