    resting places for emperors of Nguyen dynasty
    There are seven royal tombs in Hue, but i just visited three of them on 5 September. that time, i had a one day trip. i visited tomb of Minh Mang first,and then tomb of Khai Dinh,the last one is Tu Duc. These tombs are representatives of Vietnam’s historical and architectural brilliance. they are serve as serene resting places for Vietnamese emperors in the feudal era. Exploring these tombs offers a fascinating glimpse into the rich heritage of Hue and its royal past. next time,i will visit another four of them.

    City of Palaces and tombs
    Hue was the last Imperial city in Vietnam, country's capital from 1802-1945 when it was ruled by Nguyen dynasty (with French blessing). Therefore it's famous for its Imperial Palace (built likewise the Beijing one) and Royal tombs and shrines scattered around the area. There're some 7 or 8 tomb sites, but the most famous and ornate is Khai Dinh Emperor tomb. Mostly, all tomb sites are in Hue southwest suburbs.

    Beautiful interior decoration
    We joined a day tour to Hue. The visit to this Royal tomb was the most impressive ones. (other spots were a bit ruined, or else renovated). The interior decoration were stunning (and worthwhile to climb all the stairs afterall). Our tour guide explained very well on its historical stories.

    Well worth a visit
    We bought a combination ticket when we visited to Imperial City and Citadel, so we arranged a driver through our hotel so we could visit a number of the tombs and also the Phuoc Duyen pagoda. We especially enjoyed Minh Mang’s tomb and Tu Duc’s tomb, which are set in large gardens, there’s a lot more to see than I had expected. If you’re in Hue then I highly recommend a trip round the tombs.

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.

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!

Lots of steps,and a large area to cover.
Beautiful architecture,and gardens.
But so melancholic,more than sad landscapes.
The shop offers a good range of books,stamps and coins.

We were doing the rounds in Hue as most tourists do and ended up seeing the Royal Tombs, which were nice to be honest.

We visited 3 tombs, each built with no regard to emptying the state treasury and exhausting the people. Ultimately such wanton behavior led to Vietnam's colonization.

The tombs are being restored, a good place to learn Vietnam's history.
