A good history lesson

Not sure I wanted to see someone who has been dead so long but, the grounds and history of the places was very worth the visit

A peaceful interlude in the middle of a bustling city, an escape from the crowds and good place to relax and enjoy a respite from the heat

We have been here twice now and we are astounded that such a wondeful place is still standing after the ten years of bombing during the 1965-1973 war .It is a great monument to the legacy of Ho Chi Mihn..the building itself is quite magnificent and is surrounded by unique garden and minutes lawns..also around the area there is plenty...

Well worth the visit. Enjoyed seeing the elegant building and gardens. Seeing his simple and minimalistic living quarters, reception room and office.

Lots of history in this place which is not surprising considering what Viet Nam went through. Don't forget to look at the vintage cars on view.

Fascinating place to visit. Must see Uncle Ho's home. The grounds are a nice respite from the noise and bustle of Hanoi

We visited early in the morning. The palace is a beautiful place. We also visited the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh. That was a somber experience and interesting to learn how much the Vietnamese people think of him. There was also a museum which we enjoyed more for the air con than the exhibits.

This site was not open for the public to walk around the grounds and explore you can only view from a far.

A very nice building in a good state of repair, painted yellow as are All 'government' buildings in Vietnam. It is a great example of the turbulent history and the different types of buildings left by invaders throughout Vietnam

Keep this in mind if you have older visitors. Long walk from entrance. Very interesting. A must see if you come to Hanoi.
