  • This is a nice place to relax, read books or picnic. It was just restored so to me, it is not beautiful as Minh Mang tomb. You need to go with a tour guide to know more about this royal tomb. But like i said, a great place for peace and picnic.
  • Quiet, no one else here, free and just beautiful. Breathtaking!
