Effectively, in case you're a minimum of remotely interested in Vietnamese history, you most likely ought to spend HCM residence a visit. It's close to the HCM mausoleum, therefore your journey here should be quite fruitful. From the preserved format of the rooms of his, decor, you are able to see that Uncle Ho lived a frugal and simple very life. Whether or perhaps not that's propaganda is a moot issue of course , although I'm willing to think it. There's in addition some appeal within the vicinity - the one Pillar Pagoda, that should look like a Lotus plant. There's a bit of story behind this particular pagoda, which I am going to leave to the curiosity of yours or maybe your tour guide to inform you. The pagoda is where locals visit for prayers infertility.

After the mausoleum and the museum closed on the day I wanted to visit it, I just visited this landmark. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful garden, Uncle Ho's old cars and buildings! Well suited to spend a quiet hour!

You can see it driving by. Yellow is the French influence as is the architecture. Looks nice.you can see it if you go the the HoChoMing mausoleum from a distance only.

It is a beautiful building and it shows a glimpse of Vietnamese Architecture. It is restored colonial building constructed in 1906 as the Palace of the Governor General.

I actually liked the tour. It brought many insights into the lifestyle of the male. Nicely done attraction. The simplicity of the home he lived in, plus a description of the lake/pond, was extremely exciting. I'd recommend a friendly and talkative tour guide initially Hanoi visitor to describe several of the story leading up to Vietnam as it's now. After watching this one, I recognize the experience but is going to move on to see things that are different next visit. Extremely well preserved and good business. It's crucial when you're in Hanoi. You are going to understand much better Vietnam History.

The overall site was pretty interesting. The back story about the palace and the stilt house is worth learning about.

While, the presidential palace is pretty cool looking, unfortunately you can't get too close to it (or at least we couldnt the day we were there).

The stilt house is pretty cool, as is the rest of the surrounding grounds.

Its not expensive to visit and since its adjacent to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Museum its worth popping in after.

Wander round the gardens were Ho Chi Minh once lived and worked. Interesting place to visit with pleasant walks between the places of interest.

After being herded like goats in HCM Mausoleum (See separate review) , we did get our cameras and water bottles back , payed some entry fees , and strolled around this lovely and interesting site . In contrast to many places in Hanoi , here - the buildings , the gardens and the pond were very cleaned and well maintained . Because we have wasted time in the Mausoleum , we could only enter the wooden stilt house : some of the exhibits were unapproachable .
So , my advice : don't waist time on the Mausoleum , and pay your respect by visiting the site .

In the middle of the park lies this impressive building which nowadays is used for official visits of other nations to Vietnam. In the past Ho Chi Minh rather lived in his very simple wooden house right next to the lake. Visiting the palace (you’re not actually allowed in by the way) will also guide you along, for example, this wooden house and some of his cars.
