The queue was practically non existent and also, apart from the coachload of loud Germans, the location was mostly deserted. We filed through and had aproximatelly 30secs for your body to digest and process the scene. Rather a spooky staring at the nearly glowingly white colored complexion of "The Great Man" who might be a little peeved that his is going to requested cremation. I suppose the figures of guests because the death of his might possibly have established that the Greater Good was served. In case you're not into temples then this's the greatest Freebie in Hanoi.

Could not enter the mausoleum when we visited; we could only walk around the exterior and pose for photos with the mausoleum in the background. The area is also comprised of the presidential palace and homes Uncle Ho lived in. We could not go into any of the buildings.

It was closed the Monday we went but still pretty to walk around the grounds and take pictures (plenty of people were there regardless of being closed).

Ho Chi Minh was first president of Vietnam. So after he died Vietnamese kept himself in a mausoleum as a gem of the country. So dont need to pay for and you will have your diffirent way if you are not Vietnamese. Taking note that costumes to here also important and 1 hour to wait coming in.
Ho Chi Minh memorial is not only a monument, it is a complex of mausoleum, palace of the president, stilt house, museum and one-pillar pagoda.

It was an extremely humid day and unfortunately the moseleum was closed for repair works...never the less still an awe inspiring place to visit...the significance of the place and who rests there is enormous in this country's history.

Gave it 4/5 only because it was closed and entry not possible

I went to see' pickled Lenin' a lot of years back and I am certain that Uncle Ho is a much better knowledge. Queues are more compact & I am certain you get nearer to the' main attraction'. Despite the signs, you are able to capture little bags along with you and in case you've a digital camera you leave it at a specific counter for it back after the visit end of yours. Changing of the guard occurs on the hour in an attempt to coincide the visit of yours for which. And arrive there early on

There is always long standing line. Once inside several minutes is all given to view ho chi minh. It is a mystery if indeed it is REALLY ho chi minh or a wax figure. Personally I would no bother.

For a history geek like me, it is my happiness to see the smile of Uncle Ho in his long deep sleep. Before you got here, i would like to informed you that please do not listen to anyone in the street telling you to park in the roadside. It's a trap and you need to pay 50k vnd for that. There will be another motorcycle parking of 10k vnd inside the mausoleum. You need to be arrived before 10:30am if you want to see the resting place of Uncle Ho since they only let you see from 8:30-11:00. You cannot take a picture on the chamber, outside is okay tho.

This place really amazing for me especially it was free of charge to see the chamber.

But you need to pay 40k vnd per foreigner if you want to see the office, home etc that previously Uncle Ho used. There is also guide if you would like to know more.

After you enjoy the places, you may go inside the museum to see the journey of Uncle Ho from he was young till he went to long deep sleep. Museum ticket is 40k vnd as well.

90k well spent per person.

We left early to join the throngs queuing to pay their respects to “Uncle Ho” as the locals refer to Ho Chi Minh

The queue was polite and organised - ladies ensure you cover your shoulders and both men
and women should make sure your knees are covered out of respect - and the queue moved steadily. I think we waited about 30 minutes so not too bad and in the end I was pleased I had made the visit - not only to see the embalmed body in the glass casket - but to witness the reverence of the visitors - and also then to see the compound in which Ho lived and died

I felt humbled in the presence of such a historic character and all his reverential supporters and on balance I believe the visit is worthwhile

We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the Mausoleum. This is something not to be missed. Once inside no photos, the corpse is guarded by 4 impeccable dressed guards, and the atmosphere in there is eire. But a most beautiful place to visit,
