We visted here early one morning and in all honesty did not have to queue very long. Whilst in the queue though we noticed a young girl sweeping up leaves and if one was to fall this was quickly dealt with - the grounds were emaculate and lovely to look at whilst waiting. Obviously this monument is very well guarded and you have to be so careful as you have to 'cover up' arms and not wear shorts above the knee. Went entering you are not allowed to speak and must keep moving which is watched over by the guards - all very smart in their white uniforms. Once inside you file past the body of 'Uncle Ho' but you are not allowed to stop for a second as you are ushered on. I found the experience to be very moving although regimented. Afterwards we walked around the grounds and then made our way to the one pillar pagoda. Well worth a visit as it's history that we remember.

It is a huge place in a huge square. If you want to visit it you must come in the early morning. I met a man who offered me the posibility to go with him in his motorbike to show me and explain me about the history of Hanoi especially related with the US war, for 6 dolar I had a greatexperience for 2 hours

Come, comrades, and see the remains of our Dear Uncle Ho, laid to rest atop the grand mausoleum for triumphantly imposing his vision of Communist rule on one and all. Never mind he caused the deaths of millions of his countrymen in the process. This is typical of the hero-worship displays of totalitarian regimes throughout the world. Hey, he’s dead, and if you’re going to see him – stuffed and displayed like a trophy fish – you’re not. That’s about the best that can be said for this Halloween House of Horrors.

You got to see Uncle Ho, but expect to walk around a lot and get directed on prescribed routes, plus no pictures. The museum on site is not worth a visit.

We are lucky to visit this place with a private tour guide. When we went there, we are sort of clueless but as our tour guide explains everything, then we understand more about Ho Chi Minh. Here you can find his cars (from his friends all over the world), you can also see his old house at the back of the Big Mansion that was built by French when they occupied Vietnam and HCM's final resting place.
