My favourite of all the tombs I saw, and I enjoyed it far more than the citadel. Awesome interior, far more elaborate than anything else I've seen in vietnam and well restored/preserved. Also really unique tomb as the exterior is more westernised as it was...More

We went to the Tomb of Khai Dinh, which was the highlight of Hue. A little rainy during the day, but nothing a rain coat or umbrella couldn't contain. Don't miss the tombs because it may be wet outside. Still totally worth it. We arranged...More

This is a very small tomb compared to Many Minh tomb. There are a few steps to climb to get to the tomb. There are stone soldiers acting as bodyguards on the plateau below the mausoleum. The mausoleum has 3 rooms with the central one...More

This place was so beautiful, not just the tomb , the whole place. Be warned there 127 steps by the time you get to the very top and they are quite steep, but it’s worth it. The mosaic work is french inspired I guess. It’s...More

I hadn’t heard of this place until we arrived in Hue and looked at a map. It was absolutely beautiful!! The tomb looked like something out of the jungle book as it was high up and surrounded by forest. You must be covered to enter...More

This tomb is very different to the other two we visited. It is high up on a hill and has great views from the top. The rooms inside the tomb have beautiful ornate, hand made wall mosaics. It is worth buying the combination ticket at...More

Beautiful porcelain art works in the tomb mausoleum. Lookup and check out the ceiling! Yep. The former King is buried under his statue. Must see!

It is worth stopping for a short while. The tomb itself has nothing spectacular but it is up on a hill and offers a large view on the surroundings. Recommended if combined with other sites.

The tomb itself is very impressive with some beautiful architecture. It costs 100k dong a ticket which is a lot considering there isn’t really much there. When you also factor in the cost of a taxi (140k each way from Hue centre) you’re looking at...More

There are way more prettier places in Vietnam. The tomb is nice but is a very short visit (about 10 -15 minutes) and the ticket as of Aug 2018 were $5 a piece.

All the tombs are near each other and to Hue city, at most 10-15km each leg. We paid 550k for a driver to take us to three tombs and wait 30min for us at each, about 3 hours total.
