Owner description: This Lenin statue in a park at Nguyen Thai Hoc avenue is one of the few remains I saw of a recent communist past here in Vietnam. Now it seems Sony neon advertising are prefered to those old sovietic symbols... the signs of the times!

A nice little park to watch locals, older people playing chess; younger people playing skaterboard, bicycles; kids playing mini car/bike. Came during new year afternoon, and the place was decorated with flowers and people were dressed up nicely for photos here. Nice place to past the time

This is a statue of Lenin in a nice little park. It is worth having a brief look at whilst you are passing, as it is close to a lot of the other things you might be looking at anyway (the Ho Chi Minh memorial and the government buildings), but probably not worth a special trip just to see this...

This review is quite late. The Lenin Statue stands at the Lenin Park just opposite the Hanoi Flag Tower. The huge statue provides a good photo opportunity to visitors but there is nothing much to see or do around the area.

Very large stature that you can't miss. Worth a close look for 5 minutes to absorb the detail - but just a statue. Not much more to say really! Except go for a stroll through the park it's at the edge of. It's pretty.

Visiting the mausoleum and saw the statue. Lenin looks imposing but take a quick peak, you'll only be here to look at something else and will only take a few minutes of your time

This would also be the first statue of Lenin I ever seen. If your walking from the Hoa Lo Prison to the mausoleum this is right along your route which is good, but, theres no plaque saying anything about how old it is, who put it there, etc, which is bad. Other than that, the garden and layout around it... More

Stand in the middle of a small park, just a statue of Lenin, a communist Great Leader Lenin. Accross the street is a military museum with Flag Tower Landmark. You just need a little walk from Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to arrive at this location, i might say 3 minutes at best.

It's just a statue of Lenin, no big whoop. It's a common fixture in a communist country. The park area around it is nice and spacious and it's right across the road from the military museum, so you might as well check it out if you're passing by.

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...
