Just like Hoan Kiem Lake, this landmark is something to see at night too! Lights up beautifully! The entire place never gets too crowded, and you can sit by the corner and just relax.

Als je in Hanoi bent is this a must see. It will take some time. Don't go on weekends when all Vietnamese also are honoring there hero. It makes a lasting memory from Vietnam and it is impressive to feel the impact of Ho Chi Minh on Vietnam. There is a Ho Chi Minh museum (not free) next door, but... More

Nothing much. But thought would be good to go as respect to Ho Chi Minh and for the Vietnamese people. They respect him a lot and travelled across the country. It is very grand and solemn. Many soldiers at every turn. We are not allowed any photos inside the place.

The building is at a very big square and with very well guard. You can't come close or get in. A construction that is not really vietnamese.

No photos allowed inside, which makes sense. You walk in a highly controlled procession, no phones or cameras, under the scrutiny of several armed, no nonsense guards, up several corridors, walk in a U around the well preserved and reverently presented body of Ho Chi Minh, and exit. If you are really interested in the history of Vietnam (which I... More

good to see, its part of Vietnam history. Very long queue, but very quick. No pay for entrance, elecronic devices(phones, cameras,..) are forbidden. Shoulders and knees must be covered (for ladies -if you forgot it, you can buy big scarf and use it like skirt) my recomendation - buy a paper fan(10.000VDN), its very hot in this time.

Came shortly after opening time and the line wasn't long. You walk through a que and then go in to see his body. You just walk through the inside, but it's air conditioned so walk slowly! They don't allow you to take photos inside and there are lockers to store your valuables. Wasn't sure what the point of the lockers... More
