It's no surprise it's glory outshines the rest when the king himself had it built! He increased the peoples taxes to pay for it of course, and the local people helped build it. The... More

This is one of the places that you must see when you visit Huế, the old capital of Vietnam where anarchy once ruled. This is the tomb of one of the kings.

Visited during a day long tour. Very hot so make sure you have plenty of water and hat/umbrella/sunscreen. The bus was air conditioned so that was a definite bonus

Amazing is the correct word. The stile of the palace is completely different compared to royal tombs and palace. A French architectonic baroque style and a beautiful view from the windows of the palace.

These are quite extensive and very interesting. They are very well preserved and provide a great insight into life at the time. Suggest you book a tour rather than just wander around, there is so much interesting history wrapped up in each, which brings the place to life.
