When we got there it was after11am and I think the Mausoleum were being renovated. In away I am glad because I don't think I would like to see a well preserved National hero dead body on display for the public to see. My reason is very simple, it's against my principle. As far as I am concern once you... More

We went on a Sunday so had a huge wait - bit helped by lots of locals pushing in. It was then 30 seconds to see Uncle Ho which is a little surreal.

it was so surprising when you can come here. a place that many visitors from many countries spent their time in a long queue get inside. Make sure you only can visit only every day in the week but Monday and Friday. and only until 11 Am in the morning.

One feels it is rather obligatory to visit this site, not least to appreciate the symbolic and real historical importance of Ho Chi Minh as a leader.

It is amazing how long people are willing to stay in line to have a rather short glimpse of a former leader whom some seem to honor greatly. The crowd waiting, then slowly walking towards the Mausoleum is disciplined. In true communistic order everyone stays in line and obeys the order of the guards in detail. They tell you to... More

You will feel like you are gently getting taken to a place with no freedom. Make sure to wear long pants and clothing covering your shoulders, or you will kindly be asked to leave. No phones, no cameras and hands where they can be seen. But keeping little details aside, this place lets you see how important Ho Chi Minh... More

Like to do a check in in the USA , the difference is that you don't go to take a flight, you just go to see the Ho Chi Minh death body.

Ho Chi Minh's embalmed body is place in a glass box in this complex. No photographing is allowed in side the Mausoleum. We had to be in the queue to go inside and may be because it was a Saturday, it took some time. It is closed on Saturdays and only opened until 11.30 Am other days. After visiting the... More

This is a very popular attraction, we entered as soon as it opened so did not have to queue, however by the time we left the queues were winding round the complex. Must have your upper half covered up, walk no more than 2 abreast and don't speak, plenty of military around to remind any one who is inconsiderate enough... More
