It was part of our guided tour. It was hot! Going to see the body (which is well preserved) was great because the room is so cold. They are very strict with how the crowd is moving and you can't step over the line, not...More

Aside from politics you have to admire that Vietnam shook of colonialism and invaders. Walking through to see the man in his tomb is humbling.

It was great visiting this place. There was a huge line built up since it was a Sunday but the movement was smooth and soon we were ushered into the main hall.

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.
