We visited with our own guide who gave us a detailed account regarding Ho Chi Minh and his role in Vietnamese history. The site is well organised and was not crowded.

We went to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - it's very interesting, but a little bizarre. The grounds are very nice.

We got there a bit late (after 12 noon) and by then it was already closed. The outside looks impressive and do do the soldiers in their white uniforms. The surrounding gardens are picture perfect.

This mausoleum is impressive. You can't go inside, but it is worth looking at the structure and magnificence of it.

The security is quite strict.. Cant bring cameras inside as u need to leave it behind at the entrance and you will get it back at the exit.. Anyway it is kinda sad to see the body of President HCM as I have read the history before I came here.. You can take picture around the park just not inside... More

Ho Chi Minh is the father of this country. The site gives you insight to why he is so important to the people.

I don't know how does it looks as I couldn't enter the museum due to the weekend time but it was nice to move around the place & infrastructure. one of the remarkable infrastructure of Hanoi that you can visit if you have time & interest.

The gardens are absolutely lovely. There are always plenty of tourists at this attraction, but the grounds are so large that you really don't feel smothered. I enjoyed it very much

Go first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds. We showed up around 8 AM and managed to walk in while the queue lines were still non existent. Takes about 20 minutes if you get there early from start to finish. Even with no crowds expect lots of walking through empty queue lines for a short glance at Uncle... More
