You will have lunch at Thanh Toan Eco restaurant. After visiting Thanh Toan, you will continue biking to Khai Dinh Tomb, a memorial of the 12th king of the Nguyen Dynasty. Unlike Hue’s other tombs, the grandiose and concrete structure, built between 1920 and 1931, is a synthesis of Vietnamese and European elements.
