Ho Chi Minh is an historic figure and father of Vietnam - totally worth a visit. The gardens are beautiful and it is worth staying for the changing of the flag.

Check which days & hours you are allowed to view the mausoleum, it is not open often, the area around is interesting.

This is a sublime place to visit. It is close to Ho Chi Minh's stilt house and the one pillar pagoda. If you are lucky you can see the guard changing.

We just manage to check out the exterior of the construction, but lucky enough to move through the beautiful gardens, apparently seldom opens towards the public. In case you're a fanatic of bonsai, you will find a few good examples here.

oops - sorry, only just saw your question. The answer is yes, especially for women and they are very strict about it. No bare knees or shoulders for men or women.
