Great place to see after the mausoleum. You will see the park where Ho Chi Minh used to do his sport, his houses and cars and beautiful nature around!

You can't go in the Palace buildings but it's nice to wander around the gardens and see a couple of Ho Chi Minh's old cars and living quarters.

It was a very beautiful building that you will not get close to, but worth a cruise by if you are already seeing Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum.
