Just a bit outside the town is this place. It's rather interesting for people that grew up during the Vietnam war.

Good for dropping in if you are close. Nice restaurant further up the road with fish and freshwater prawn dishes.

Didn`t know before that Ho Chi Minh was living in Thailand to prepare his revolution. We had an excellent guide through the museum who explained us all kinds of Ho Chi Minhs stay in Thailand. It is a must go when you are in this area!!

Nice gardens with Ho's restored home something of historical significance is worth a visit if you're in the area looking for something to do. The caretaker's grandfather helped Ho Chi Minh during his... More

A very small place, is OK to spare your half an hour to visit this house, have a chit-chat with locals who are Thai-Vietnamese. They love to chat and share you a story. Souvenir is not too pricey, you can grab one if you like, too! I quite enjoy looking around with a diverse of plants in the garden!!

Very interesting but little explanation in English, Uncle Ho's is worth a visit, on the way you pass a very colourful Vietnamese cemetary. Drove the loop clockwise to Renu Nakhon to see Wat Pra That Renu Nakhon, Pla Pak, Nong Saeng back to Nakn Phanom. Beautuful country drive, rice paddies, water buffalo, small villages, local folk and much more...loved it.

The house and small museum... More

This facility shows a history of the Viet who came to live in Thailand and mainly focuses on Ho Chi Minh who lived in a house nearby which you can also visit. It would appear to be mainly used for official visits celebrating the Viet-Thai relationship with lots of photo's.
