The Mausoleum was crowded with local and foreign tourists. We made a beeline to the entrance. Cameras and phones are prohibited in that area. The security is very strict. You can't even speak loudly or go away from the queue. The guard shouted at me as he found my bag suspicious (he thought that I brought something harmful?) and then... More

This was included as part of a tour and the guide implied it was a highlight and not to be missed by anyone. There was a huge queue and we were shuffled from pillar to post before being given special access. Joining the queue we slowly traipsed past the embalmed corpse of Australia's wartime enemy under the supervision of armed... More

I was very much looking forward to a trip to Ho Chi Minhs mausoleum... It was a morbid curiosity I openly admit and I was naive not to expect too much security, how wrong I was! The use of any electical devices is strictly prohibited and and we had 3 bag seraches before we entered. We were then marched in... More

This was our first stop on a day long tour of some of Hanoi's attractions. The last entry into the Mausoleum is at 11.00am and the rest of the place including the museum closes at 12:00pm. Hence, it pays to be here well before 10.00am of you intend to visit all the places of interest. The place itself was very... More

Well there is a definable pride in how the people think of Doctor Ho. Humbling really to be able to talk to them about him and experience the pride they have in this man.

It's ironic that Ho Chi Minh, who engineered Vietnamese independence and eventual reunification, stated that he wanted a simple burial when he died. Instead he has been embalmed, put into a glass casket, and is on daily public display in the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, a monumental edifice in Hanoi. When I say on daily display, that is not quite...

After all the touristic place ... Take time out to see Uncle Ho's mausoleum. You will travel back in time while seeing him and entire area where he spent considerable amount of time. One is amazed to see long queues of locals visiting this place early in the morning. We arrived early as well to avoid the rush but honestly... More

Not sure whether it is the HCM house (old house) or presidential palace, but the one I went is just beside the HCM mausoleum. The mausoleum is fantastic, gave me goose bumps and eerier feelings to see how they can preserved president HCM body perfectly! The President seems like resting/sleeping peacefully. What i want to comment here is during my... More
