On the walk back from Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum, you encounter a small park. The centrepiece of which is a large statue of the Great Lenin. His watchful gaze looking over the remains of Uncle Ho. Its quite peaceful here and a small respite from the madness of Hanoi and it's crowded streets.

It's more than just one of the few remaining statues of Lenin (and the only one existing in Vietnam). It's also a park that's best visited in the evening, when it comes alive with men playing mahjongg, women practicing aerobics and ballroom dancing and loads of kids training on their plastic motorbikes in preparation for the day that they're old...

CC ( 2014.08.01 ) There was a small park with Lenin statue. Don't look for this place, and visit passing by. Nothing special to enjoy, just small park.

The statue of Lenin is impressive in nature, the park it is in is beautiful. The local people use it as a meeting place, lovely trees provide shade in the heat of the day. Nice to sit, relax and watch the locals.

I really don't understand why a statue of such an awful person still stands in a park in Hanoi. Pull it down!!!

if you stay near the area you can get it... These are past times...A reminiscence from the Sovietic Union. Not worth to go there...

Known as 6 Le Nin to locals as its says on the plinth V.I. Le NIn, the Lenin stature is stauted in a little park opposite the war museum and close to other main sites. It does not have the same cachet as in the past as I saw boys playing football in front of it just the other day.
