Be prepared to queue but this Mausoleum is worth the visit. The queue moves fairly quickly. And yes you do get to Ho Chi Minh lying in state. Make sure you were appropriate clothing for the visit - not short shorts or singlet tops. The signs also say no hats, talking or hands in pockets. We were fortunate to meet... More

We went in the afternoon right on time for the changing of guards. It was a nice ceremony just like any other change of guard ceremony. We were not able to visit the body of Ho Chi Minh coz they said you can only go in the morning so instead we were just taking picture around and it was nice

This mausoleum is no different to others in the world; meant to impress and does the job. If you’ve never seen one, do go to get the taste

well organised but no information in English - guards are very respectful - is it an embalmed body or a facsimile - can't be too sure

The building is very powerful and majestic, the roads around the building are wide there are some garden areas near by but the general public are not allowed to walk around them.we went on a Friday and the building itself was closed, it pays to check before you go !!.

Very interesting - beautiful grounds. Very officious Guards demanded I take off my prescription sunglasses. Please remember to not wear shorts or sleeveless tops. No photos allowed and phones must be turned off. Stilt house and old cars worth a viewing. We queued for over an hour - but worth the wait.

The Ho Chi Minh Mausolem is basically a big building guarded by an honor guard. Not much to see. We were there on a Monday, when it was not possible to view Ho's preserved body.
