Superb “Soviet” style architecture. Precision changing of the guard ceremony (about every hour). Closed periodically when ho’s body needs a bit of restoration work.

Visited on a cold Hanoi day. Would highly recommend getting a local guide to make sure you get the history. Lovely place to visit and very humbling.

Spectacular precision but be aware that closed on Mondays. Must cover shoulders and knees. Presidential Palace and Vietnamese Parliament House second's walk away. Brilliant white uniforms and very stern security guys.

We stopped here and walked all around the plaza. We didnt get a chance to go in - the hours are odd and long lines form fast. Check the schedule before heading here to time your entry. This could almost be a "drive by" attraction...More

Had a nice visit even though the Mausoleum was closed for restoration. It was nice to walk around the grounds and learn the history of Hoh Chi Min

Immaculate white uniforms of very young guards provide a glimpse to this manicured perfection that is the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Don't cross the yellow line which is there to keep you that distance. Note the Mausoleum is closed for 2-3 months each year from...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.
