Tomb of Tu Duc

This is a beautiful historical site that is being refurbished with lots of stories by the tour guide. Found out at the end that the Emperor is not actually buried here.

A real hidden gem, set in an area about 6 km outside the city. You can't fail to be impressed with the scale and beauty, and the history before you. Loved it.

One of my favorite and best Tomb of all. Very picturesque and is massive. Take the tour guide along, it definitely helps. Beautiful Japanese style bridges and great architectural decor. Interestingly, despite the grandeur of the site and the amount of time Tu Duc spent here, he was actually buried in a different, secret location somewhere in Hue. To keep... More

This was a nice place to visit. Took it in as part of a city tour. This are some nice buildings and there are nice gardens around a lake.

Looking ancient and reveals feeling of Hue! Together with Khai Dinh tomb, this was my favourite Tomb in the area. Very charming and peaceful!

Together with Khai Dinh tomb, this was my favourite Tomb in the area. Peaceful and charming. I rented a scooter and did a trip of tombs. Highly recommended!

While the tomb is impressive, we found the gardens around the tomb of Tu Duc to be even nicer. Our guide told us that once the tomb area was completed that the emperor enjoyed the surroundings so much that he build a summer palace there.

Upon entering the grounds you wander around a small lake with a man made island in the centre. There is calming music being played from a pagoda and then you walk up the steps to the emperors quarters and finally his tomb. Statues of mandarins and elephants and horses are a great backdrop for some photos. Don't forget to take... More

There are many tombs you can visit; this was the one we liked best. If you buy a ticket at the citadel this is part of the package. We just took a taxi there, it's quite near the city.
