The strangest museum I have ever visited! Nothing really made sense to me with lots of abstract art which appeared to have a very loose link to Ho Chi Minh, all very surreal! The layout appeared to be very haphazard with no real flow. There was also very few English translations so overall a disappointing experience and one place to... More

Amazing place, we stood in line for 2.5 hours in sweltering heat, so line up and have a quick glimpse of Uncle Ho himself.... Crazy just you just have to do it... I think it's a waxed version of Uncle Ho myself.

Ho chi minh wanted a simple cremation after his death, yet the government felt that displaying him to the masses was appropriate. It is only open for a few hours a day, and not opened on Mondays. The building itself is impressive, and you will see queues of people lined up to witness this gentle mans' frail body.

We arrived by 9 and as we had employed a guide, he took the camera as we joined the line, 10 min walk and into the mausoleum - the covered queues could hold a couple of hours of queue easily - making Disney queues look like beginner stuff. Probably shouldn't have worn my American Eagle graphic t-shirt but no one... More

Please remember to cover your shoulders and wear a long skirt or trousers. I had such a stress near the mauseleum. I didnt know I had to go all covered inside, so went there with a top and shorts. The guard pointed at my bare shoulders and said 'No-no', so we had to go shopping for a T-shirt or something... More

Visiting hours have to be checked. It's open in the morning. Although the rows looked a bit scarry long .. we were inside before we knew. Ho Chi Minh was really there and I even think he blinked en eye at us.

THIS IS A MUST. Its FREE and open to everybody. However, they are only open for a few hours in the morning, so ask the hotel about the opening hours. Remember to bring cloths that covers to the knees and no less then a t-shirt. This is the closes you will get to a true communist feeling, so dont miss... More

It's hard to appreciate the degree of veneration for HCM in Vietnam until you visit the HCM Mausoleum complex--you'll find locals coming in their Sunday best and often waiting in line for hours just for a 30-second moment with what may or may not be Ho Chi Min's embalmed remains. I'd strongly suggest coming early in the morning on a... More
