Two of the most famous Royal Tombs—Tu Doc Tomb and Khai Dinh Tomb—are located here. Wander the temples, courtyards, tombs and pavilions tucked amid lush pine forests with your guide and learn about the Nguyen Dynasty before your tour ends are you are transported by private vehicle back to your hotel.
