I guess when in Hanoi you must venture to their version of Red Square & see Ho Chi Men's burial site. It's not a that there is any thing bad about this but I just found it a little underwhelming compared to the other sites in Hanoi. Safe & clean.

There are no cameras or bags allowed. No guides allowed to give you guidance and you are surrounded by communist government officials. I was also not expected to see a dead body and the whole ordeal was emotional knowing about Uncle Ho. I think I needed to be a bit more prepared emotionally for the ordeal, despite it lasting 10...

You can get to see bac Ho, but during certain times of the year. I was unlucky, however touring the area you learn a lot about the history, it's also quite beautiful!

A very organized visitation, asd you are directed in groups to various areas until permitted to enter the mausoleum--a walk around HCM and out--memorable, beautiful, sad.

If you want to see the late Ho Chi Minh then you must obey the rules and not flaunt them or you will be ejected by the military guards.You will see the former leader in his glass coffin as you walk around him. Keep moving and take in the experience.

We tried visiting the mausoleum in the afternoon and were told that going in to view the body of HCM is not open in the afternoon. Tripadvisor says that it is open but not according to the guards around the mausoleum. Plan to visit in the morning if you want to go inside.

To see the place that Ho Chi Minh has been laid to rest was quit impressive. Unfortunately the mausoleum was closed on the day of our visit. Did see the changing of the guard.

A must see from outside but if the queue is long you don't really need to go inside unless you are a devotee of Ho Chi Minh and want to see his body!

Every visitor should see this in the early morning to witness the changing of the guard and flagraising. then watch the sun come up and the scores of Vietnamese queue to enter, including tiny schoolchildren.

To get to see Ho Chi Min , you have to go through a fair bit of annoying and nit picky security . When you get into the mausoleum they lead you through in groups where you literally walk past him in 30 seconds. Was interesting but not worth the time spent .
