Full description
You will be picked up from your hotel in Hue and head to the first stop of the tour, Minh Mang Tomb. The site is considered one of the best examples of Nguyen Dynasty architecture and artwork, and is set within a beautifully landscaped garden. Next, proceed to Khai Dinh Tomb. This tomb is situated in the Chau Mountains, in between scenic pine, cassava, and sugar cane farms. The tomb's architecture is a blend of East and West. It took eleven years to build and was completed in 1931. Then, continue to Tu Duc Tomb, located in an area of rolling hills and pine trees 7km outside Hue. The tranquil grounds are filled with trees, ponds, and pavilions where Tu Duc used to write poetry. Emperor Tu Duc had his tomb built 16 years prior to his death and actually wrote his own biography prior to his death. The last stop of the trip will be the Thien Mu Pagoda. It is the oldest religious structure in Hue and is also one of the most impressive. It was constructed during the 17th century to worship the legend of a local woman with spiritual connections. The tour ends with drop-off back at your accommodation in Hue city.

Visita guiada con Ms. Nhu y Mr. Trung (conductor) excelente. Dedicamos unas 4h a visitar las 3 tumbas, una pagoda y una tiendecita local. La visita fue muy enriquecedora para conocer la historia de los diferentes emperadores de Hue y sus curiosidades. Además, intercambiamos aspectos y tradiciones culturales entre Bcn y Vietnam. Al finalizar nos recomendaron un lugar de comida típica. Sin duda, repetiríamos! Muchas gracias a ambos!
