Too crowded to be enjoyable. You join one long conveyor belt of tourists if you come here and may suffer the added chaos of large loud school groups. The most photogenic building is the French colonial Presidential Palace, you cant go inside but it looks impressive towering over its finely manicured gardens and ornamental pond. You can go inside Ho Chi Minh's minimalist stilted building if you are prepared to queue for a long time. An argument erupted between one of the soldiers guarding the house and someone in the queue. I don't know what it was over, possibly someone took a photo of something that wasn't allowed. This added an uncomfortable air of tension to the queue. There are a lot of rules when visiting this place, but its hard to know what they are. The only fun part of the visit was the quirky One Pillar Pagoda.
