The tomb of Minh Mang is one of the older tombs in the area. Large complex with runs along a straight line with multiple buildings to go through as you follow the Emperors's Path - amazing setting with gorgeous grounds and lake with koi. You don't actually see the tomb but you can image what it was like in the... More

We were driven here first thing in the morning and it was latively quiet although there were a lot of local women on a school reunion in beautiful local dresses being photographed. It is a lovely site and so big with moats and lakes and serene woodland. You can understand why someone might want to build a tomb here. We... More

The outline and design of the tomb is extremely noteworthy. It is an awesome place to spend an entire day getting a charge out of the tranquility of the grounds.

Came here as part of a tour and our guide explained that it that this emperor 14 years to find this spot where he wanted his tomb to be build. It's said that all original buildings were distroyed in the war and had to be rebuilt. Also no one exactly knows the exact location where the emperor is buried as... More

This tomb of Minh Mang is that of the 2nd Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, it's about 12 kilometres from Hue. We had a guide and private transport that took us from the Pagoda to 3 of the Imperial tombs. The tomb is in 18 hectares and is beautifully laid out with lakes and walkways...a central courtyard, Pavilion of steles,... More

Need a round trip taxi ride as most people do that. Impressive place. Must be glorious during its heydays.

Our guide told us that the tomb of the 4th Emperor was more elaborate than this one but then brought us here anywhere! I am glad he did. There is something very serene about this location and from what little we knew of the 2nd Emperor seems to be a fitting testimony. The Hue citadel doesn't compete with the Forbidden... More

We cycled to Minh Mang from Hue and arrived at a time when there were no tour groups so it was almost empty. Calm and serene atmosphere felt perfect for a tomb. Beautiful buildings. The symmetrical layout was very satisfying.

This place is really nice to see. We like to visit pagodas and tombs with beatiful rooms and gardens around. You can get for this sightseeing combine ticket.

It was disappointing to walk to where the tomb is, only to discover that you don't have access to the hill where the tomb is. Otherwise the whole site is pleasant to wander around although there I see still a lot of restoration work needed. If you only have time to visit one tomb, go to the Tomb of Khai... More
