Monument of their communist governor

One of the very few mausoleums left standing in the world. Constantly with guards in front. It's next to the royal palace so you should plan to visit both of them.

The main mausoleum was shut when we arrived! We had no clue about the place being shut! There are no signage/boards also that mention it...the adjacent museum and president's house were open though

The mausoleum was closed for upkeep when we were there. Apparently this happens at least once a year.. So if you're hell bent on seeing Uncle Ho, you best check the maintenance schedule.

Our taxi dropped us off at the end of the route intended for visitors, thinking that that was the entrance. We did not have much time, so skipped the museum and walked further into the park . When we tried to get to the front of the mausoleum, we were turned away by guards and also when we wanted to... More

A firtting tribute to the founder of the nation who devoted his whole life to obtaining the country's freedom. Remember that Uncle Ho ( as he is affectionately called by the Vietnamese ) is removed for a dusting and clean up each year for October and November so is not on view.

Visited this on our last day here, well worth the 25 minute walk from the old quarter, lots to see en-route, all the various Embassies. The masauleum itself was closed as limited opening times, but just walking around the impossing structure is interesting enough. Huge parade square, everything is carefully monitored by security, dont try to approach it too closely.... More

During my time in Vietnam I have learned much about the history and culture of this country. I have come to understand something of why the people revere "Uncle Ho" as he is affectionately known. I was disappointed to find the Mausoleum closed due to maintenance, but went to see the evening 'closing ' ceremony. This is attended by many... More

A good local guide will talk you through the background to Uncle Ho's input to the shaping of modern Vietnam. He is revered by all, and the mausoleum is their lasting tribute to him. You can also visit the house he used, nearby.
