Uncle Ho is a revered figure in Vietnam and his mausoleum is over the top. They line you up two at a time and in total silence you are allowed to walk by and view him lying in state. While it may seem goolish, it...More

We learnt a lot about the father of unified Vietnam. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. A must visit in Hanoi.

If one is wiĺling to buy a hat similar to the one used by Ho Chi Min, this is the place. Otherwise it is a waste of time waiting three hours in Hanoi's unmercifull wheather to have a glimpse of the embalmed leader.

I did not queue togo in but it was interesting to walk past it. You cannot walk right in front of it but there is a wide grassed area around which you are allowed to walk to view the mausoleum.

Visiting the mausoleum was interesting - we ended up being in the actual mausoleum for about 1 minute, but getting in there was a highly orchestrated, rigid and lengthy procedure, where you marched in rows of 2 along a certain path, with pauses here and...More

This place is opened till 11 in the morning. It is very similar to the one of Lenin in Moscow. You will follow a long queue of people moving towards the temple, through the huge garden

The queue is much shorter towards the closing time. But bear in mind, if you intend to visit the museum and Uncle Ho's house of stilts, they close at 12noon and reopen at around 1.30pm-2pm. I am not sure if you have to pass... More
