Ho Chi Minh was clearly highly regarded by his people which is evident in every aspect of the care of the structure and surrounding gardens and buildings. We could not enter the Mausoleum due to. 3month maintenance program which apparently happens every year.

At this time of year (OCT) the body of HCM is sent to Russia for maintenance purposes (???). So the structure is closed up tight. You can walk around, within bounded zones, and watch the changing of the guard, otherwise not much to see.

We went here on a Monday and it was closed but the grounds are lovely. It was also raining so we were wet. It was part of a tour but with so much inaccessible it was just to appreciate the grounds!!

Visited the area around the mausoleum, regretfully the mausoleum was closed for maintenance so only outside was visible. In a visit to Hanoi must understand the history of the country to understand all the significance of the mausoleum and to begin to understand all what...More

This is an interesting place to see and learn many things. You will learn more about President Ho Chi Minh, see the French architecture and a famous and unique pagoda. Should get a guide with you.

oops - sorry, only just saw your question. The answer is yes, especially for women and they are very strict about it. No bare knees or shoulders for men or women.
