The buildings and gardens are wellkept and nice. Interesting facts and look at this leader house and way of living. They want you to cover up but I saw lots of sleeveless ladies. But take something just incase.

It's a very nice place to visit while you are walking in the central Hanoi city. The place has a vast grass body and is spread across a huge area . The iconic Vietnamese flag hoisted there is very iconic there .

A very interesting piece of architecture set in a very green area with lots of space. Quite fascinating really just to stand and look. Late evening the honour guard march out and bring down the flag in front of the monument.

Nice place yo visit. Many important buildings are around. A one hour walk around with a guide who can speak English is necessary.

A very striking and solemn mausoleum. We did not go inside, but we strolled down the pedestrianised area outside the building. Not much to do otherwise really if you don't want to go in.

The Mausoleum is set near a small lake and gardens where Ho Chi Minh lived. His 2 homes are there in a peaceful setting. Lovely to see the tranquil green gardens in contrast to Hanoi's constant hustle and bustle.

Very impressive. Long queues that however moved quickly. Struck by fact that near totality of the visitors were locals, and by how a near-religious feel was observed.

The queue is much shorter towards the closing time. But bear in mind, if you intend to visit the museum and Uncle Ho's house of stilts, they close at 12noon and reopen at around 1.30pm-2pm. I am not sure if you have to pass... More
