This is probably best place to visit in Hanoi city. Structure is beautiful, and looks different with lights at night. So probably evening would be better time to visit. Apart from this there is big park, buddhist temple and museum nearby, so plenty of things...More

The most impressive thing about this place is how much effort goes into keeping order here. The actual time you get to spend in the room with Ho Chi Minh is very short.

Went on 5dec about 9am. Shocked that the queue is about 300m long but after moving, the pace is quite fast. Took an hour to complete. Nothing much to see, except the guard changed parade. Main purpose is the pay respect to their great leader...More

You don’t really get to wander about. You stand in line and get to walk thru and see the Mausoleum but you can’t stop and meander because there is a long line of people. Definitely glad we went though. Women -make certain your shoulders are...More

The vast expanse of green grass alongside concrete walkways provides a visual sight that leads to the resting place of Vietnam's hero How Chi Minh. Sitting high atop the field the mausoleum protects the remains in a stately manner. A must see!!

Immaculately maintained grounds around the mausoleum with well organised system of moving tourists along quickly. Mausoleum itself a real cold era style dark and mysterious block of granite, weird yet beautiful for Western eyes. Ho Chi Minh’s body is well preserved and respectfully displayed. Professional...More

According to our guide Ho Chi Mings body has already been to Russia to be ‘ restored’ earlier in the year. So as far as I know you’ll be able to see him in his mausoleum. Enjoy😊
