President ho Chi Minh Statue, Ho Chi Minh City

3.4
#17 of 53 in Sightseeing in Ho Chi Minh City
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.
