A very peaceful and place and walled surroundings . The gate is a beautiful piece of architecture along with the tombs themselves. The fish pong houses some of the biggest fish,a destination if you are looking for a peaceful place to escape the craze of the city.

With its lake and beautiful water pavilions, the gardens around this tomb were lovely. Also, there is a mini version of the imperial city, since the king spent so much time here, in his retreat.

This is a nice temple and tomb area situated just outside Hue. All buildings are in nice shape with nice waters surrounding the buildings. Good for a visit for about 2 hours, especially when the sun shines.

About 7 kilometres from Hue.This tomb and surrounding areas has a lovely peaceful feel to it. Maybe it's the man made lake or the pavilion overlooking the lake. I do recommend using a guide or being well read on the Emperor and history of the tomb.' I found it interesting the he would live at this site at various times... More

We had a good tour around here as it was not too busy. It was lovely walking through and imagining what it must have looked like originally.

Well kept and lovely to see and walk around with walled ponds giving great photo op for reflections. Even tho it was busy the area is so large that we were not bothered by the lumbering crowds and classes of yelping schoolchildren. "HALLO HALLO HALLO" (giggle) I must say however, that by the end of our tour of tombs we... More

We hired a private driver to visit here and other tombs. This was our favorite. Very peaceful and calm and although fairly busy there were areas you could be alone and only hear birdsong. Very interesting history. Worth a visit.
