We did a river cruise down to Minh Mang tombs stopping at a Pagoda along the way and then took buses to visit 2 other tombs. Very enjoyable day.

This is also a must see when in Hue and is often part of a tour with the Citadel and the Pagoda. You can visit this place on your own, no need for a guide.

This was one of the most regal parts of the Imperial palace complex. The lacquor work was glistening in the sunlight. The red and gold combination on each tomb was impressive Our guide told us snippets about each emperor, that helped give life to each...More

I made the mistake of trying to cram all of Hue into a single rushed day trip from Hoi An. This was unfortunate as the only tomb I managed to see, the Tu Doc tomb, was actually really quite impressive. Since the tombs are spread...More

In the squere of the tomb, there are statues, which copied the emperor's worriers and bureaucrats. In order that the emperor would spend his ordinaly life in the dead world. we could know the old culture.

It was raining and misty but we still enjoyed this tour. I guess the mist added a kind of Nostalgic feel to the place. I'm glad it was cool and was nice to just appreciate the beautiful trees and flowers.

We visited two of the Nguyen tombs - Khai Dinh and Minh Mang. Our advise was that most of the other tombs were either quite similar in architectural style to one or other of these - or were not reall worth the effort. We were...More

I recommend that you hire a taxi for half a day to visit 2 or 3 tombs. There are seven royal tombs. If you wish to visit more than three tombs, you must do this one more time. Over 2 half days you can visit five or six... More
Hi all, How long would you say a visit to Hue would take? Both the citadel and the tombs. I would be arriving to Hue from Hoi An probably around 10 am. Would it be ok to visit during the day, maybe 4-5 hours, and then go (I would be heading to Phong Nha/ Son Trach) or is this just too short to see it ok? Any advice would be welcome, thanks!

How long to spend in Hue? It depends on who you are and what you want to see. Many visitors spend only one day in Hue. For me, this is not enough. We had five days in Hue and we managed to see many places, but there were... More
