Glad we saw it

As he is so important in the history of Vietnam it is good to visit this. Unfortunately we only saw the outside as work was being done.

I can't say much to recommend this place as it's a huge building holding his remains. The gardens are nice for a walk, but the problem is that you can only get in at specific times rigidly set by the government. That's OK, it's their choice but as a recommended place to visit for tourists then not so good. Also... More

The visit is a must but rather unfit for children. Nothing much has changed in the over two decades since my last visit. Long queues little to see.

I was expecting a little more, even to go inside but you can't. It is really clean and quiet surprisingly. Def recommend ticking it off the list

Mausoleum looks cool particularly from a distance. But nothing amazing, and nothing is gained from coming close. Maybe there's more when the place is open, but there was no entering the mausoleum when I was there.

Spent a misty damp morning at the Mausoleum. Very somber inside with Ho Chi Min lying in state. Very well controlled audience and incredible that he looked so good

I felt like I got on board with the locals for this conveyor-belt-type experience. Check all camera and bags; shuffle past Ho Chi Minh's incredibly well-preserved body. Seems like a must-do for me since he's the father of modern Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh's body wasn't there when we went, having been taken to Moscow for his annual touch up. As a consequence we could only view from the outside - bit of a disappointment.

The main mausoleum was shut when we arrived! We had no clue about the place being shut! There are no signage/boards also that mention it...the adjacent museum and president's house were open though

One of the very few mausoleums left standing in the world. Constantly with guards in front. It's next to the royal palace so you should plan to visit both of them.
