Great open area to walk round freely no charge, it’s something you can take as long as you like looking around we spent an hour or so, you can watch changing of the guards which we saw.

Get there very early! Free entrance but huge lines. Dress up appropriately no shorts or flip flops. You are not allowed to take photos and don't even attempt because they will arrest you. The chamber of Ho Chi Minh is spectacular.

Make sure you dress appropriately, ladies shoulders covered to show respect or the police may stop you entering the grounds. We didn't get in to see Ho Chi Minh but impressive from the outside and all round the grounds. Saw them changing the guards .

The mausoleum was shut as it is open only for 2 months a year though other areas were open for visit Please choose a cloudy day to visit as considerable walk is involved and it can get quite hot in the sun.

Monument is closed now so you stand in the sun and look from the outside. More interesting is the house and gardens where he lived although the grand house is also closed to the public

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.
