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.

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.

In Hue, we booked a taxi for all day and visited all the tombs. I recommend this approach as how much time you need in each place is entirely up to you and are not hasted or rushed by the larger tours.

Lovely place and views when a bit more quieter.

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.

I loved these tombs, all were so different from each other
They are a distant apart but if you have a taxi or motorbike doable yourself from Hue.
Allow time to wander around and make sure your camera battery is charged as they are all photogenic!
