The structure itself, along with the 1 pillar pagoda, is a nice place to see. I was unlucky because every time I tried to go inside, it was closed to the public. It was just bad luck on my part and nothing wrong with the place itself (closed on Mondays, and Wednesday was a national holiday).

This was such a strange experience and a must do when in Hanoi. Best advice is to get there soon after it opens at 8am. It is located a 2km away from the main tourist centre of Hanoi in a spacious area devoid of other attractions, just a few embassies. You cant take anything inside with you, such as bags... More

You cannot visit Hanoi without a trip to the mausoleum it was worth the trip make sure you wear lose cotton clothes because it can get very hot in the queue and you cannot carry water past a certain point.

Yes, you do have to queue and the restrictions are fussy but this is a special place, well worthy of a visit.

Went as its a big thing to do in Hanoi. I had read about Ho Chi Minh before and his desire to be cremated so I felt a little sad about the situation as his wishes were not granted. The queue was huge and spilled out onto the streets. Some Vietnamese people just tried to cut in front of us... More

We visited Hanoi 1 month ago is a great destination. During that time we visited Hochiminh mosuleum intelligence is the soul of this city, very clean, spacious, quiet, demure and amazing scenery. you can visit the next location such as one-pillar pagoda, Ho Chi Minh Museum, house of Uncle Ho. Definitely, we'll be back Hanoi in the next trip. You... More
