Great place and a must see spot if you are in the area. Unfortunately a certain tourists there do wreck it quite a lot. I was elbowed in the guts, pushed and shoved, they speak within the viewing room and do not show any respect...More

Very strict with long lines for a 30 second view of Ho Chi Minh (“Uncle Ho”). Best to go with tour group or guide. Even with all the hassle, crowds & strict communist rules, it’s a must see thing if you come to Hanoi. BTW...More

I visited the mausoleum early in the morning and there was a long line of people waiting to get in. However the line moved quickly. The mausoleum itself is a bit like looking at a wax museum. You aren’t allowed to take photos or talk,...More

This building was closed the day we visited, but looks as if it is an impressive building, complete with vast forecourts for large gatherings. Security is reasonably tight. Guards were in attendance.

You cannot visit Hanoi and not visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Uncle Ho is much loved and Vietnam owes much of it's recent history to this famous Vietnamese icon.

The monument is recommended to be seen in Hanoi. After all it does not took to long to visit it and the main sightseeing places are around.

Well we saw uncle ho. Yes lying peacefully. But the whole thing was just ok. That’s the history. More remnants from the time could have been displayed to give more feel but that’s the way it is

This is just a large formal area with a monolithic brutalist building at its centre containing Ho Chi Minh’ body, contrary to his explicit wishes. The greater complex contains two of Ho’s houses, one colonial French, the other Vietnamese, which are marginally more interesting.

The grounds are extremely well kept and the mausoleum is massive. Be sure to stay long enough to see the "Changing of the Guard" as it's a nice activity to witness. We were also lucky enough to see army personnel practicing marching together behind the...More

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.

I would suggest going early morning as it is only open until 11am. They open at 7:30; we got there at 8 and the lineup was wrapped around a few blocks. The lineup wasn't as bad as it looked though and we spent a total of... More
