It is not really breath-taking but it is part of Vietnam history and helps to understand the country and people. Therefore should be seen.

Maybe it's because I've never had the privilege of witnessing such a thing but although I waited over an hour in the heat, the quick shuffle through the air conditioned mausoleum was a bit somber and inspiring. I went during the 40 yr liberation too so al the museums and street party was a good lead up seeing Ho Chi... More

There is great admiration for the statesman and we decided to hire a local guide to bring us there. The place only opens on Tues to Fri and the guards changing ceremony is held every hour. Overall an eye-opener for me. PS. Strange that the guide narration is different from what you read from Wikipedia. Found out yourself.

An amazing structure both moving and fascinating. Soldiers stand watch for 4 hours at a time without moving and then you can watch the changing of the flag and changing of the guard. HCMinh only wanted a small memorial after he died and would probably turn in his grave to this structure.

Great to see, shame you couldn't sit on the grass as we would have stayed longer. Lots of people around in the evening, walking and exercising. We saw the changing of the guards

I visited the place on Ho Chi Minh (or Uncle Ho) 125th Birthday. It was more intriguing. You are not allowed to bring any camera in and you're supposed to wear clothing that covers you properly or you'll be denied. The distance to the glass tank that contains his body is barely 6 metres away and you can really see... More

Be aware of the weird openingstimes and be on time because it can be very busy. The whole area around the mausoleum is huge. You can see Ho Chi Minh lying in a 'glassbox' and just walk around it. Nothing special.

This was amazing! Not so much the Mausoleum but the crowds of Vietnamese that gathered to honour Ho CHi Minh. It is not morbid but a place where Vietnamese pay homage to a man who brought change ( whether you agree or not with the changes) to Vietnam.
