It was very hot the day we were there, so take sunscreen and a hat. Our guide was great at explaining what all the areas were about from the Concubines temples to the actual memorial stone and final resting place of Tu Duc.

Most beautiful and natural of the tombs I saw. Blends well with landscape so best to go on a sunny day when you can enjoy that. Also very large and has subsidiary tombs for first Queen and adopted child of Tu Duc.

Went there with the family of mine. Unfortunately, the climate wasn't that great. It was drizzling throughout. The kids decided to remain put within the van, even though the adults ventured out. It was wonderful. The entire place is very serene and beautiful. It offered...More

The only disadvantage to this tomb is that we have no idea if we saw the whole place as we weren't able to get hold of a map. There is a large site with loads of different areas to see. There isn't a lot information...More

The Tomb of Tu Duc is highly under estimated in the Lonely Planet. It is a tremendous experience and left all of us utterly excited and moved. We were there at sunset. The tomb closes at 5 pm, so it is worth while arriving at...More

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.
