“worth a visit”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

set in well landscaped gardens we enjoyed the walk and looking at the house and artefacts. the main house which Ho Chi Minh never used can only be viewed from about 100 feet away. its a government office now. his house which is slightly to the left of the main house is much more modest and set beside a small lake.

“Well reserved”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

It is great that they are well reserving Ho Chi Minh's stilt house. The area is very peaceful with gardens, fish pond. The house is very simple. It reflects the simple's living of the Great President. Admission is free for Vietnamese.

“Quick visit”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Walk through the "simple" life that Ho Chi Minh reportedly adopted. See the famous house on stilts, his cars, dining area, and kitchen. A quick visit after the mausoleum - takes 20 minutes.

“A whistle stop walk through”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

As we entered the grounds the guards shut the gate - I guess it was their lunch hour or they were shutting earlier. The guards then starting herding people along the paths towards the exits shouting at anyway daring to just stand and look. Did not get the chance to look inside any of the buildings but from the outside there did not appear to be much to look at.
