Historical Mausoleum
Aug 2020
I went here before the pandemic - Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the resting place of President Ho Chi Minh. You can enter the mausoleum to view his embalmed body on a glass guarded with soldiers. You must be quite early to get in the queue. I didnt go inside and just took a photo outside

Interesting place worth a visit

Peaceful and lovely place to visit, which locates right in the center of Hanoi capital. Our walk there was so interesting, with a connection visit to Westlake and Tran Quoc pagoda

Great Leader - Ho Chi Minh
Feb 2020
This is where the Great Leader, Ho Chi Minh is resting. You can see the body of Ho Chi Minh, resting in the glass case. Its a nice place to go and pay respects. Its very strict there, no loitering around, you can't take pics inside the mausoleum and talk too loudly. All this shows how much of love and respect is given for Ho Chi Minh. If you are there, please do show some respect for the Great Leader. There are soldiers in white uniforms on guard duty and marching around the Mausoleum. I did try to ask permission to take a photo with one of the soldier stationed there. He politely told us that he is on duty and he cant take pictures. We respected that and we moved on.

The solemn and revered Mausoleum of President Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi ...
Jan 2020
I wouldn't say "Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum" is a tourist attraction, but it is certainly one of the most revered monuments by all Vietnamese. At Hanoi's "Ba Dinh Square", President Ho Chi Minh's (*May 9, 1890 +September 2, 1969) embalmed body lies inside a glass case with dim lights. Outside the impressive marble building, inspired in "Lenin's Mausoleum" in Moscow (but with Vietnamese architectural elements), huge queues and honor guard. Before going, check its visiting hours, as it changes according to seasons. Dress properly, join the queue, keep the pace, be silent and respectful. No pictures, no stops and no entry fees. Enjoy!

I would not bother, TOO COMMUNIST CONTROLLED, l was surprised how strictly the Tourist Guides were so censored.

Do not bother, guards are too strict, outside if you walk too close to line in allowed path, because you want to get past a group walking too slow, you are told off by guards using sign language. Also if inside building walking upstairs to view Ho Chin Ming dummy body(he is cremated), when l stopped to wait for my wife again l was told off.

Sobering
Mar 2020
The Mausoleum in Ba Dinh Square is the resting place of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam's most popular leader. The site is very heavily guarded and when entering the Mausoleum there is no opportunity to stop and linger as the visitors must continuously "flow" through. It is important that you dress with respect and cameras are forbidden. The Mausoleum is closed to the public between September and December and also some days of the week.

Worth a visit

We had such a lesson of Vietnam's history on our visit to the Mausoleum. The campus looks so nice, peaceful and solemn. We had great time to get inside the Mausoleum, visit the stilt house and one pillar pagoda. Memorable!

A must in Hanoi
Feb 2020
If you are lucky enough to Visit Hanoi, then you must go and see Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Our guide Khan took us to see it. It is secure and you will have your bags searched. We were lucky as the changing of the gaurd was taking place as we arrived. In there starch whit uniforms, they looked great. One tip, do not cross the yellow line. It was not very busy because of the covic 19, so it was so good for us to see it all, with only a few other tourists about.

A must see
Mar 2020 • Couples
Didn’t want to go into the actual mausoleum and anyway it was either closed due to coronavirus or due to time/ day we visited . Cant’t quite understand why foreign tourists would want to actually view the body.

Impressive building and grounds, rather ‘ Stalinist’ looking. The main guards changed whilst we were there, very smart all in white uniforms and precise marching etc. The soldiers/guards were all, or seemed to be, much taller than your average Vietnamese!

A must see in Hanoi but not that memorable.

Heavy hearted and Remarkable Trip
Apr 2020
I last came to this place a long time ago, and I had just visited it again, to see Ho Chi Minh and feel the cold atmosphere, a strange feeling of gratitude. It's horrifyingly quiet, you can hear yourself thinking. The guards are like silhouettes. The visit was lovely and I cant wait to find an opportunity to go again.
