Tomb of Tu Duc Reviews
L’histoire entourant le roi Tu Duc est très intéressante. Homme d’une grande sagesse, timide et intellectuel. Il ne voulait pas être roi. Son frère lui a déclaré la guerre. L’armée de Tu Duc a vaincu ... more »The story surrounding the King Tu Duc is very interesting. A man of great wisdom, shy and intellectual. He didn't want to be King. His brother declared war on him. The army of Tu Duc defeated this one, but the King lived only in sadness after this event. The place is of great beauty and tranquility. I recommend you to be accompanied by a guide who can tell you the story of this man.
チャーター車でいったので，ドライバーさんがフエには不慣れで，入り口付近で待ち合わせをしたのですが，入り口と出口が分かれており，出口はかなり離れた場所にでした．あわてて電話し，迎えに来てもらいました．中は，水辺が近いからかトンボが沢山 飛んでいました． more »The driver was unfamiliar with hue because it said by the Charter car, and the entrance and the exit were divided though it met in the vicinity of the entrance, and the exit was considerably a far place. I called in a hurry and asked to come to pick me up. In the middle, there were many dragonflies flying near the waterfront.
Wonderful place abandoned park. Guards try to play a fun game with the people that try to get on the park which of course isn't legal but for anyone that wants to break the rules you need to pay for it. Great area to drive around with the bike if you can get it in. We just opened the fence as other people left. They told us to. The guard will try to get you and ask for money... Approx 20k would do per person.
A really delightful and peaceful place to visit with very few other tourists. These tombs are so much more than just a tomb, they are complete landscapes carefully chosen (some took years to even plan) and then built as a little piece of heaven on Earth. Somewhere where the spirit of the Emporer would be happy to spend eternity. I was certainly happy to spend an afternoon here. It is a surprisingly large area with landscaped hills, lake, waterways, woodland as well as the beautiful buildings. Dress appropriately for the temple elements. Walk off to the quiet corners and enjoy the peace as well as discovering something new. There is repair work all over this tomb but not enough to spoil your visit by any means. However, the other tomb a few hundred yards further down the road was completely shut due to renovation work (mid December 2018). A word of warning about travel I used an app to get a ride out here but it didn't work to get back in to town for some reason (too far out perhaps?) Thanks to the other couple who let us share their car back in to town!
