This is one of my favourite in Hue. First of all, it was builded using terracing which gives a special styles and feeling while you walk towards the back and where the tombs is. The views are spectacular and many intriguing things while you climb. It worth trying to read about this king of only 9 years. You can access... More

We really enjoyed touring the Royal Tombs. A good guide is essential to get the best, but an amazing insight into Vietnamese royal history

We viewed the three main tombs (Khai Dinh, Ming Mang, TuDuc) with a private car and driver arranged by our hotel. Each tomb was quite different from the others and gave us an insight into the lives/deaths of the emperors. A visual treat as well as peaceful views. Allow about 4 hours in all.

We visited most of the tombs, can't really remember which was which but all the ones we visited were really impressive. I had no idea they were so large & covered such a large area, you really can spend a long time at each, allow yourself plenty of time to explore. Far more interesting than the various pagodas

The Royal Palace made a lovely half day of casual wandering. I never imagined the palace was so extensive. They are gradually renovating parts of the palace and restoring the vivid colours. At the time we visited it wasn't crowded so the walk was peaceful with a nice tea garden inside.

the citadel was destructed. other than the wall the building were reconstructed and nothing much to see. The tombs were far more historical and artistic. It worth the trip. If you're rush in time just take a private car and go. Khai dinh tomb is the most unique with details craving arts on all the structures. Other tomb are more... More

Definitely worth going but preferably not in a group as you get whisked along too quickly. The 3 royal tombs are the most interesting ones and if you can add the Tu Hieu Pagoda to the Thien Mu Pagoda, it's well worth it. Try to spend some time looking at the wonderful scenery during your drive. Motor bike is the... More
