Well worth a visit, finally remembered we were in a communist country, with smartly dressed soldiers keeping a close eye on tourists.

Not much to see with this site itself - kind of imposing view on the overall area, nicely kept up and guarded. You have to enter from the south and no outside drinks are allowed, so plan accordingly.

Be prepared for a lot of walking as this Complex is very extensive. The Mausoleum is shrouded in dignity and respect.

We spent several hours one Saturday morning standing in line with literally thousands of Vietnamese people to view the Mausoleum - we were amongst only a very few foreigners - it seems that most foreign visitors join tours and miss out on the hours of standing. It was an amazing experience, and thoroughly recommended. We learnt far more from being... More

It is worth to visit the mausoleum also in the evening. Less tourists and the whole complex creates a different atmosphere.

We were in this day trip package. It's on our list. Not that keen to see a body in a glass coffin. We all voted out not to go in, specially the quequeing time was 2 hours! But! We still had to queque to get in the campus and walked around.. You decide!
