“great”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Saw the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh. Wasn't able to go in as it was closed, but lovely to see it with lovely trees and flowers. The square had a lovely feel to it.

“...don't feel bad if you miss out on going...”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Long queues on the day we visited. Yes, the historical element was interesting and yes, the grounds are lovely, but don't feel you've missed out on anything if you don't make it.

“Interesting”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We enjoyed seeing the two houses Ho Chi Minh lived in. The park was interesting. The former French embassy looks quite monumental. See the One Pillar Pagoda. We did not go in the masoleum.

“Ho Chi Minh's Residence”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

This place had such beautiful gardens. A quick tour. As with everything, try to get there earlier to avoid the crowds.

“Interesting, a guide or excellent knowledge is necessary.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Lovely gardens, very beautiful grounds. I wouldn't say its a must do, very interesting and well maintained but takes a whole to go through, wouldn't really recommend for families with young kids - saw lots of tantrums on my visit! The architecture is lovely, and the gardens are excellent.
