I found this a wast of time. Simply put three buildings (re)built three years ago loosely in the village uncle Ho was born. No doubt just what the locals need but as a westerner on holiday my time could have been better spend elsewhere.

I expected to see and learn more about Ho Chi Minh's home as well as his father's home and village. While it is very well maintained and is quite and peaceful, it lacks the energy of the life and personality of the President

Uncle Ho lived here with his extended family. The characteristics of the rooms are well preserved. A great place to visit for the history buffs. The drive to the Native place is nice as well.

There are a few sites in the area related to Ho Chi Minh’s family and childhood. These include both his mother and father’s villages. Also the mountain where his mother, baby brother, and grandmother are buried. This was actually my favorite site in the area....More
