The area around the monument is nice and quiet and great for cycling or simply walking around, especially if you want to escape the din of the old quarter. However, the structure is nothing very remarkable, a typical communist building with tall columns but do...More

During our holiday we have learned so much on the history of Vietnam. We where interested in seeing the man himself but was closed today. If you are in the area the changing of the guards is interesting.

Ho Chi Minh was clearly highly regarded by his people which is evident in every aspect of the care of the structure and surrounding gardens and buildings. We could not enter the Mausoleum due to. 3month maintenance program which apparently happens every year.

At this time of year (OCT) the body of HCM is sent to Russia for maintenance purposes (???). So the structure is closed up tight. You can walk around, within bounded zones, and watch the changing of the guard, otherwise not much to see.

We went here on a Monday and it was closed but the grounds are lovely. It was also raining so we were wet. It was part of a tour but with so much inaccessible it was just to appreciate the grounds!!

Great time spending the day here. It was crowded in the morning with lots of groups but definitely worth a visit if you're in Hanoi.

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
