This is where the Great Leader, Ho Chi Minh is resting. You can see the body of Ho Chi Minh, resting in the glass case. Its a nice place to go and pay respects. Its very strict there, no loitering around, you can't take pics inside the mausoleum and talk too loudly. All this shows how much of love and respect is given for Ho Chi Minh. If you are there, please do show some respect for the Great Leader. There are soldiers in white uniforms on guard duty and marching around the Mausoleum. I did try to ask permission to take a photo with one of the soldier stationed there. He politely told us that he is on duty and he cant take pictures. We respected that and we moved on.

I wouldn't say "Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum" is a tourist attraction, but it is certainly one of the most revered monuments by all Vietnamese. At Hanoi's "Ba Dinh Square", President Ho Chi Minh's (*May 9, 1890 +September 2, 1969) embalmed body lies inside a glass case with dim lights. Outside the impressive marble building, inspired in "Lenin's Mausoleum" in Moscow (but with Vietnamese architectural elements), huge queues and honor guard. Before going, check its visiting hours, as it changes according to seasons. Dress properly, join the queue, keep the pace, be silent and respectful. No pictures, no stops and no entry fees. Enjoy!

Do not bother, guards are too strict, outside if you walk too close to line in allowed path, because you want to get past a group walking too slow, you are told off by guards using sign language. Also if inside building walking upstairs to view Ho Chin Ming dummy body(he is cremated), when l stopped to wait for my wife again l was told off.

The Mausoleum in Ba Dinh Square is the resting place of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam's most popular leader. The site is very heavily guarded and when entering the Mausoleum there is no opportunity to stop and linger as the visitors must continuously "flow" through. It is important that you dress with respect and cameras are forbidden. The Mausoleum is closed to the public between September and December and also some days of the week.

We had such a lesson of Vietnam's history on our visit to the Mausoleum. The campus looks so nice, peaceful and solemn. We had great time to get inside the Mausoleum, visit the stilt house and one pillar pagoda. Memorable!
