All the tomb are very similar but this one is very special. It's a must visit. Take your time and enjoy the place.

Not as dramatic as Ming Manh but still worth the 30 minutes to walk around. You can see artisans repairing the wall designs if you are lucky.

Hue if the kingdom of ancient tombs. Forget the type of tombs we have in our own countries. These are massive and piece of art. And the stories behind them are so powerful. You can spend hours just to experience this.

Yes they are, the whole area is open and the Tomb it's self is in an open area but not spectacular for photos. The surrounding areas are very photogenic so a camera is a must.
