Well Done Mausoleum for Viewing Ho Chi Minh

We enjoyed our visit to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. We were fortunate to have VIP passes so the wait in line was not too long. The lines move quickly. Interesting that they... read more

We enjoyed our visit to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. We were fortunate to have VIP passes so the wait in line was not too long. The lines move quickly. Interesting that they insist that you walk through with your hands at your side. And of course no talking, no hats and shoulders and knees covered. The viewing area is... More

I am a veteran of the "Vietnam War" and have made several trips to Hanoi over the past five years, but never wanted to go to this Mausoleum. My veteran friends on this trip convinced me to visit, and I am glad about it. The building, embalmed body, honor guard soldiers, etc are interesting, however the real high point was... More

Our tour guide gave us a good sense of how much the country has been through especially in the recent years as it fought for independence from the French and then resisted the US invasion. There is no better place to learn more about all this than the Mausoleum where you see the preserved body of HCM and where he... More

A must visit especially for people who have studied Ho Chi Minh. The square is majestic and not in keeping with what Uncle Ho would have wanted so it was fascinating to visit the humble man's private residence in the same precinct. Be aware that entry to the Mausoleum itself is closed a couple of days per week for cleaning.

Noting great. Just like any other government building, not that great or impressive. However, our experience was eclipsed by the fact that we couldn't go inside to see.

We love to go here in the morning or evening for exercise on the terrazo paths in front of the Mausoleum. Typically a fair number of people there in the morning - all for the purpose of exercising and getting ready for the day. If you want to see the flag raising and lowering ceremonies - make your exercise visit... More

I didn't enter the mausoleum, however I walked from district 1 and was worth the trek. The view of the mausoleum is beautiful and worth a good picture.
