If you have the time, do visit this. In my personal opinion this has to be in your to do list especially if you like history. A very nice place to have a peaceful walk out of the busy city of Hanoi

We went with a guide who provided us with a lot of propaganda but also a good factual summary of "Uncle Ho's" life and a summary of the history of communism in Vietnam. We went on a Saturday so there were lines but we only waited about 40 minutes and got to watch the "changing of the guards" while we... More

The residence of Ho Chi Minh is a part of Vietnamese history and a must see in Hanoi, the grounds are quite beautiful and the lake is very pretty, you would probably spend no more than an hour here, and if you can try not to go on the weekend as this is a major site for locals and the... More

Nice. I wished the tour of the palace was included. The spacious garden was well maintained. This place is really crowded on any weekend. We went on Saturday.

Highly respected gentleman with guards surrounding the building where the gentleman sleeps peacefully. Look out for the changing of guard. Interesting.

One of the requisite stops on a visit to Hanoi. Worth seeing and experiencing, but try to go when the crowds are light.

Even the relatively cheap entrance fee doesn't feel like it was worth it after walking around the grounds. It takes about 30 mins. the impressive presidential building is off limits, and that area would have made the visit worth it. But the rest of the area open for exhibit was a bummer. Not recommended unless you arrive at the area... More

Worth a 1 hour visit as part of a wider tour. Interesting to see the simple quarters he lived in but all views are external through glass. Grounds very pretty.

The park consists of the mansion that he never lived in, but used for state meetings. The quarters that he lived in on the grounds were very humble.
