  • On my mind the second best tomb I've visited in Hue. Definitely interesting, but keep in mind that almost all tombs have a very similar architecture, so if you visit the others you don't necessarily need this one.
  • This is one of the most interesting sites I've visited in Hue, and actually found this tomb more fascinating than the Palace and Citadel. There's a unique style and architecture to this place that really testifies to how much the French had entwined themselves into Vietnamese life. French culture appears not so much fused as forced upon Vietnam's extent, ancient culture. The setting for the tomb is remarkable, absolutely picturesque.
