Yes, the queue moves fast, but that's still a pretty long queue and lots of time spent standing if you go mid-morning like I did. Seeing the military processions and the reverence Ho Chi Minh is treated with was interesting though. I only spent a...More

Very well ordered and controlled here. You cannot take water or a camera, but you can carry a phone providing you do not use it in certain areas. There are very many eyes, and guns watching you as you follow the long line in single...More
