This is kind of out of the way, but well worth the effort to get here. the old tomb is intricate with carvings and construction. While the King isn't actually buried here, it is a good memorial to him.

This's simply stunning. There appears to not be way too many visitors here than Hue city. The artistic function over the structure is amazing. The view and the statues over the river are to not be forgotten

Awesome to watch the Imperial Tomb with it is a design that is beautiful. A location focused on a famous emperor Dong Khanh. The massive architecture with great designs on the wall space, floors, stairs and ceilings. The numerous pictures of the dragon are amazing.

Nice to visit. Great architecture and view from the tomb. Inside of the tomb is not as interesting as the outside though.
