  • This place is incredibly beautiful and can take 30 to 45 minutes to see it all. Lots of good photography places and the tomb itself is really well kept. Tickets are not expensive at all, around 100,000 if I remember correctly. No need to book online, tickets are at the door and there is plenty of space to walk around, a gift shop, toilets and a photography section if you want to sit on the throne and get dress ups. Ofcourse that's an additional price inside.
  • This is "another house in another world" of the Fourth Nguyen Dynasty Emperor where embraces nice landscape showing sophisticated Vietnamese styled Imperial Garden. It's balanced between construction aesthetics and nature and full with traditional buildings. And it is definitely one of the most romatic complex in Hue City for exploration.
