Excellent grounds to walk around, steeped in Ho Chi Minh history. Well worth a look around with guide to explain the history. Beautiful architecture in this lavish looking building, although we couldn't go inside. Ho chi mines residence was very very basic, it seems he was a simple man with simple tastes

It was a great pity that you cannot visit inside. I was not sure that because it was a Sunday so that we cannot visit or because we were foreigners.

The Presidentual palace in Ho Chi Minh is called also a yellow palace when i heard it from the local. Maybe no need to have tour guide in this area from palace to one pillar pagoda to museum and flag tower and other nearby historical places.

Interesting to see the grounds and hear the tour guides talk about Ho Chi Minh. It was kind of fascinating. Not much to really see except the grounds and some buildings that you can't go inside. Not really worth a stop but if you have the time sure.

Leftover from French colonial times, this is a truly magnificent building. Set amongst lush gardens, it is impossible to miss an give a stark contrast to the simple accommodation favoured by Ho Cho Minh.

I enjoyed our guided tour of Ho Chi Minh's garden and simple houses. It was great to learn more about the man who is so loved in Viet Nam and who shaped its recent history.
