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!

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...

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.

Big park with square in front of big statue. Not worth the trip but was worth crossing street to see while at Military museum
