“Very nice of tombs in Hue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Make a half day in the south of Hue city by motorbike to discover the differences of these tombs. Minh Mang and Tu Duc as nature to the quiet time while Khai Dinh is as Western style. Many things to see

“Much better than the Citadel!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

They are all located outside the downtown, but much much better than the Citadel, which is a bit boring. The tombs are accessible by taxi, bike taxi, or boat (you need to use bike taxi from the wharf though).

Major ones are Ming Mang (2nd emperor), Tu Duc (4th), and Khai Dinh (12th). The first two are quite large while the last one is much smaller but more intensive. The last one is the favorite of many foreign tourists probably because of it's colorful decoration. The first two are more like parks with traditional buildings. I like Tu Duc the most.

Dating only from 19th century the Royal Tombs are located in a beautiful park. The place is really lovely , not overcrowded. You can take you time visiting and reflect.

“Hue - the Emperial City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Visiting the royal tombs is high on the list for any visitor to Hue. all emperors are buried here, and all the graves are different, reflecting the different styles and achitechture at that time.
My personal favorites are: Tu Duc, Ming Mang and Khai Dinh. Gia Long is also special, because it is difficult to get there.
If you have limited time, give priority to these 3 or 4.
