Getting to Mausoleum is not so easy and very much time consuming. So get ready that you will have to leave everything before getting there and lines are long even from early morning. the visit itself is super short as you must follow the crowd.

For me it was great to see a communist monument like this! In the middle of Hanoi, I highly recommend a short visit, do keep n mind it is closed at some point every year !

we could not go inside the mausoleum but we still loved it. The complex is big and good just to walk around, but it is nice if you have a local guide to tell you some things.

This is a very impressive Tomb of the famous Ho Chi Minh. Unfortunately we couldnt enter,as it was closed. We witnessed the changing of the guard,which was very impressive !! Apparently,you can see Uncle Ho's body in his coffin when inside.He is a very well respected Figure Head in Vietnam,as he did a huge amount of good for his People... More

We managed to get there with almost no waiting time which probably helped the experience. A great introduction into the symbol that HCM represented to the people and how he continues to be honored. Very well done

We visited Ho chi Minh palace a few months ago. It was an amazing experience visiting my hometown with my boyfriend. The place reminded me of Vietnamese history and traditions.

You don't have to sign up for the mandatory organised tours to visit this place. Very spacious and cool at night with lots of local folks. This place is family friendly and good for couples. Did not enter the mausoleum and it's still worth the visit. I believe it is more beautiful at night due to the external flood lights.

As mausoleums go this one is pretty good. It was being refurbished when we were there so we could not get inside. Still worth a visit though!

I agree with other reviews that say it is "a must see to appreciate". It was incredibly hot the day we went and you walk for quite a while underneath sheltered verandah's until you finally reach the mausoleum. It is so cool and peaceful and you automatically feel like you are in a very revered place where the utmost respect... More
