Calm and relax place to visit and stroll through the afternoon

The park was huge and spacious. Felt very 'village' and gone back in time. Setting was nice and comfortable. Sat down for a cup of local coffee to enjoy the scene and air.

Popular with locals but you only looked in from a distance. The house on stilts was well presented. Have a look at the cars - from a Peugot to armoured Russian Zil.

I suggest a guide so you will learn the history of Ho Chi Minh. We did not get to go inside the place but we got to tour the two homes he lived in. The gardens were beautiful.

It is a place worth visiting to pay respect to Ho Chi Minh. Whatever difference we may have over politics and war from his ideology, he did dedicate his whole life to his country and people.

A fascinating place and very interesting that Ho Chi Minh lived a simple life without frills. The lake was beautiful and particularly interesting were the roots of the trees and pomelo trees.
