We queued for a long time in very hot weather under the watchful eyes of Vietnamese soldiers to ensure no talking, we entered and exited the Mausoleum very quickly walking past the tomb of Ho Chi Minh. Apparently Vietnamese people are expected to visit the...More

An experience you should partake in when visiting Hanoi. There are a couple of queues, entrance is free but queuing does take some time. Unless you arrive near the end of the two slots when it does clear up. Like others say, the queue does...More

Tour of mausoleum was unexpectedly touching. The location was larger than expected, but the actual viewing was very respectful and touching.

Giant concrete like structure houses the remains of the most revered man in Vietnamese history. Its ugly and looks like all communist buildings - no embellishments - just utilitarian. It was not open the day we were there.

Regardless of your political beliefs I suggest you first read about Ho Chi Minh’s life. A small book is sold every where in Vietnam and it’s inexpensive. Yes, it’s biased, but it covers enough facts to let you know what an incredible person he was....More
