Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

Serving as a memorial in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is built for people to pay their tribute to the great Vietminh leader Ho Chi Minh, Chairman of the Communist Party of Vietnam from 1951 until his death in 1969. You may know that Ho’s remain is embalmed and placed in a glass sarcophagus (same as Mao, Lenin, and Kim Il-Sung), but you may not know that this, de facto, was against his will of cremating his body and scattering the ashes over the country.

Adding Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to your Vietnam tour as icing on the cake, because the moment you enter this solemn building, you’ll feel connected with the father of this country, things he did for his people and the honor he bore. Here are some tips for you while entering the mausoleum:

- Come early if you don’t want to join a snaking long queue

- Talk in low voice and dress no shorts, bags and cameras are requested to surrender

- Shootings by any equipment are not allowed inside the mausoleum

- In Apr. ~ Sep. from Tue. to Thu. the mausoleum is open at 7:30am to 10:30am, 7:30am to 11:00am on weekends; in Dec. ~ Mar. from Tue. to Thu. the mausoleum is open at 8:00am to 11:00am and 8:00am to 11:30am on weekends. On Friday and in Oct. and Nov., the mausoleum is closed.
