  • The Ho Chi Minh Museum is located in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is a museum dedicated to the late Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam's revolutionary struggle against foreign powers. It was constructed in the 1990s.
  • One of the most places I suggest visiter go to! The ticket very cheap 5000VND (about $0.25 USD)
  • Great place to take pictures of the entire city from the other side. You can get some great view
  • I love it. If you want to know about Vietnamese, Ho Chi Minh President. Go to here.
