This is the huge square fronting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Ho Chi Minh read the Proclamation of Independence here in 1945. There is a daily flag raising ceremony at 6 am in the morning. A tourist attraction, hordes of tourist visit daily.

The scale of the square is an ideal setting for a number of significant buildings. To one side is Ho Chi Minh's (HCM) mausoleum (stark, forbidding and powerful), to the other is the National Assembly building and then at the far end is the classic...More
