Visited 3 different tombs in Hue. This was the most recent, but most impressive imo. Visiting tombs is kind of boring as hell, but I enjoyed this one most.

Steps from the bottom take you up and up passing statues and dark towers before ascending to the mosaic filled top. A tomb to impress and dazzle you.

We enjoyed our visit here, although the weather was very hot, 38c but felt like 48c. The status of the men, horse and elephant was great, more signage would be good so I would suggest a guided tour or do some reading before you go...More

One of the most elaborate emperor tombs in Vietnam. Interesting architecture of Chinese, French and vietnam. Only emperor that solicited funds for his tomb! Flamboyant, young and elaborate emperor! Beautiful art pieces, wall decor and wood carvings. Steps can be steep at certain level but...More

The outside looks old and moldy, although our guide explained that frequent washing does not prevent mold from growing back right away, due to the 100 inches of rain and constant moisture. Inside is unusually ornate.

it's good to visit Ming Mang first and then this one. Then you can see the time transition between earlier King of Vietnam to the later one. It is nicely maintained on the inside.

Take a tour and see if you can see this tomb as part of the day. Each of the tombs are different and reflects the character and beliefs of the emperors. Loved being able to see Khai Dinh!

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.
