a nice walk

It was hot and we were tired. The grounds are well cared for and the people friendly. Bring your own water and time to visit.

The buildings are classic French architecture, so lovely old cars and huge fish in the pond as well as Ho Chi Minh's modest alongside his palace.

It was rather mobbed when we visited the palace. Good insight into how Go Chi Minh lived, and worth the hassle.

I don't really know about him but this it was a good visiting. You can pay once and look around all the places includes a museum. Also a good garden. Worth to try out!

A must-visit if in Hanoi for a Few days. It can get pretty packed around the site, so prepare yourself for large, slow-moving crowds

This is a well maintained part of the city with Palace centre stage in some lovely gardens. Hard to miss this area if you're visiting Hanoi and certainly worth some time.

Get to understand more of the country's recent history with visits to the French colonial palace and Ho Chi Minh's office and houses in the grounds. All outside only but worth doing.

Scenic but only worth visiting as part of the wider complex. You can't enter any of the buildings and Ho Chi Minh's furniture and cars aren't really that interesting. It's cheap though and the lake and trees are pretty.

We din't visit the presidential palace because there is just some hours of the day to visit but it's a beautiful monument that you can see from the road.
