A pretty place to visit. We came by motorbike and there is free parking but lots of hassle from stall holders - we paid the 5000dong to park to avoid the stall holders! Not much in English inside - take a guidebook! Pretty lake.

Partly undergoing conservation and reconstruction, this stunning tomb is set within beautiful gardens with lakes and other water features, a mound and many ancillary buildings, all elegant and in varying styles. Well worth a visit.

What I enjoyed about the place is the performance of Hue traditional music every day. I don't remember but its highly recommended to check for the hours as the performance is awesome.

This was the only tomb I visited. I hired a motorcycle driver to take me out and wait for me. There's not much there in way of explanation, so read up about it before you go.

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.
