This is a must see if you are in Hue. You will need a guide so that you can fully appreciate the history. There are a variety of tombs and monuments. Go either early or late in the day as it gets very hot.

Only managed to visit two of a dozen tombs of Nguyễn dynasty spread across significant area such of Hue. Many are far apart. But would recommend making an effort. Consider running motorbikes to make it a more authentic experience.
