Mausoleum not open Mon or Fri apparently long queues to see the embalmed corpse of a guy who wanted to be cremated. Interesting insight into the manipulation of History by the party.

We went to the mausoleum with a Vietnamese student. She talked us through the history of Ho Chi Minh from start to finish. Then we had to put all bags in a storage locker and were ushered through the maze of lines to go into...More

Everyone queues patiently to see the embalmed body of Ho Chi Minh. Very respectful. Museum, pagoda and stilt house where he lived at one stage we’re good to see and learn more history.

Spent more than an hour walking this large compound. Besides the mausoleum, there's a big garden and a beautiful lake, all so picturesque. It's definitely worth a visit, never mind the crowded tourist groups.

Whilst the queues might look big they move at a very steady pace and there’s not much standing about. You’re ferried in two lines into the mausoleum and past this body of Ho Chi Minh. Inside it’s very cold, for obvious reasons and the mood...More

oops - sorry, only just saw your question. The answer is yes, especially for women and they are very strict about it. No bare knees or shoulders for men or women.
