If you come from a country where you might have a street named Ho Chi Minh like I do you will be pleasantly surprised when you enter this iconic place. The people in this country love him and for a good reason, as his story...More

This was an early start but personally I think worth it. He is a huge part of their lives and the people clearly still revere him. The queue goes a long way down the road but once it opens it moves pretty quickly. You need...More

I wished we had got there before 8am. The line of people literally went for miles. Watch out for guys saying their dad works in it and they can get you to the front. They can't. The line is totally controlled by the military and...More

Went on a Sunday morning. 30k taxi from puppet lake. Queued 7am out of Mausoleum and into surrounds 8.10. Only 20 seconds inside. Guards keep you moving. Only bayonets are carried by rigidly still guards at each corner of the sunken inner part of the...More

Wouldn't particularly recommend this museum. Not much to see. Perhaps influenced by the fact we got completely soaked in a tropical downpour. Not friendly. Kept getting moved on by officials. Interesting to get an experience of the regime.

A total experience, well worth a trip but be prepared to queue. Also you can't enter in shorts or with exposed shoulders.

I think as long as you are not wearing vests and mini hot-pants, there shouldn't be any issues. All of my friends, some of them are female, were wearing T-shirts, shorts, sandals.

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
