(360+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
Pay tribute to the Vietnamese leader who fended off US invasion and put the divided country back together at President ho Chi Minh Statue, a very popular place for photos. Standing 7.2 m (ft) tall on a square in front of the French colonial style building, the statue shows the leader greeting visitors with his right arm gently raised. Inaugurated in 2015 to mark the former leader’s 125th anniversary, which replaced a former statue of him standing with a girl, this 4.5 m (14.7 ft) tall bronze statue stands on a 2.7 m (8.8 ft) tall black stone platform making a prominent landmark set in a well-maintained public garden.

  • We stopped at this statue during the day and continued to walk around the city. We couldn't believe the difference at nighttime when the whole square was full of people of all ages, posing for photos,...  more »
  • We saw this on the way to the Rex hotel. Definitely worth a look. It is set in a lovely quake with water fountains for the kids.  more »
  • It is a very historical landmark in the city, with a beautiful garden. There are lots of shops to visit in the area.  more »
