Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hanoi

(3.8/5 based on 7,000+ reviews on the web)
Erected on the spot from which the legendary Vietnamese leader proclaimed the country's independence, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum serves as the final resting place of the leader's mummified body. Although the beloved "Uncle Ho" wished to be cremated, his followers decided to put his embalmed remains in a glass case. Today, his pale body lies exposed to the views of devoted pilgrims and curious tourists moving slowly in endless rows during most of the year--except for a period when it gets sent to Russia for conservation. The building--inspired by the Lenin's mausoleum in Moscow--was erected in the early 1970s. Inquire about proper etiquette before you enter--keep your hands out of your pockets, do not hold up the line, and don't attempt to take photographs. Arrange to visit Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and other attractions in Hanoi using our Hanoi vacation generator.

  • A whole experience. For your site, you need all the stuff. For example, your bag, camera etc. Then you run towards the building neatly in the row. Guards are ready to accompany you in it, like.. The building is impressive. Via a staircase with red carpet to get to the room where Ho chi minh is laid out. You can't, just take it easy, and of course silent out of respect. For the building is a large square. Here you can make some pictures. Also around here the living areas of Ho chi minh. Surrounded by beautiful gardens.

  • Here, the cult of personality at the top is driven. Pretty much everything is forbidden in the system. Even the water bottles be removed one of greatest heat. And that not too loud talking, make sure uniforms on every corner. A visit is worthwhile only for Ho-Chi-Minh-fans.
