Despite the queue this is certainly worth a visit. Local people and tourists alike make a line to walk past the embalmed body of Ho Chi Minh. The line moves quite ceremoniously and takes a little while. It's a bit of a walk to get here, no vehicles are allowed nearby, but it's quite easy to negotiate. Then you can... More

If you visit Hanoi you should visit this venue. The exspanse of the site contrasts the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. The stately presentation and reverence to Ho Chi Minh is a bit chilling. The full dress, at attention guards put you into the proper mode to absorb this event. The other stops on the grounds...

We went here in a group tour of about 56 people. While we were queuing outside, our guide told us NO HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS. No food, no water, no cameras, Phones must be switched off and no hats! You have to leave all these in the counter or give it to your guide and he will hold it all... More

Coming to the museum and see the embalmed body of Ho Chi Minh was a very humbling experience. It was interesting to observe the local people paying respect to their former leader, who liberated the country from the French colonial rule. It appears that Uncle Ho still hold a special place in the Vietnamese heart. There was also the expected... More

This place is heavily guarded and you must keep your distance. Roads are blocked at either side so you do need to walk a bit to get here. But make sure you explore the surrounding area too. Ho Chi Minh is held in very high regard and this burrial site shows how much. Its a very impressive building.

A large edifice with equally large parade ground to honor Ho Chi Minh, in Hanoi. Every communist country must have something equivalent. We did not go inside, only viewed it from the outside.

It was very interesting to see the reverence they hold Ho Chi Minh in when we can wonder around tombs of famous kings and queens in England in various cathedrals etc and on one takes any notice he is guarded by four soldiers at all times and you cant speak it was very interesting

I had a great chance to visit Uncle Ho of the Vietnamese people. It was so crowded there because i went there on Sunday. The Mausoleum was full of people

For a start be prepared to be sheparded by immaculately uniformed soldiers who usher you along, no lingering! We were lucky to visit when it was relatively few visitors and quiet. To see Uncle Ho is actually very moving. A pause for respect was allowed, just. The gardens are also well worth taking the time to walk round but make... More

This one is worth a visit just to see how overboard we can go for no apparent reason. Excessive guards at every corner and it seems to be a requirement to remain somber. Amusing!
