get up those stairs
Mar 2020
With a fit pair of legs, we set out with our guide. It all looks a bit grey to start with, but as you climb and look inside you will see some really amazing colours.As I have said in my other reviews, you really do need a guide, or you will see lots but know nothing.

Quite a site and a sight!

Be prepared to climb if you want to get to the top where the tomb is. I counted the steps and if I didn't miscalculate...there were a total of 127 over three sets of stairs. Plenty to see between flights of stairs so time for resting! Very opulent tomb!

Tombs for Puppets
Feb 2020
The 19th and 20th century imperial tombs near Hue were for the succession of puppet kings and emperors the French installed in those years of their "protectorate." Not France's proudest moment. Some are interesting, but none are interestingly old, not to mention ancient, nor of significant people.

Opulent palace
Jan 2020
This palace stands above many others due to the incredible mosaics and other finishings, as well as a really interesting story associated with the king.

Must see

If you are visiting Hue, then this is a must see! Read it up on the history of this emperor and dynasty beforehand though.. then you will appreciate more on the architecture and decoration inside the tomb.

Beautiful Mosaics
Feb 2020
Taken here in private car with guide, quite a drive out of the city. Quite a few steps, coming down one has to be careful as there are no railings. Amazing the preplanning and construction of this tomb.

Must see when in Hue
Feb 2020
We booked a tour with a Bee Bee Travel and had a guide and driver to visit 4 major tombs. It was well worth it, as the tombs are located outside of the city and without a guide you end up looking at a lot of ancient buildings with little frame of reference. We started with Thieu Tri, went to Minh Mang, Khai Dinh and ended with Tu Duc. I think this was a perfect way to see the tours as they were all very varied and the progression was well done. Thieu Tri is still unrestored and parts of it are only ruins so its good to start there and work oneself up.
