Huge queues but move along at a reasonable walking pace, most of the time. We started at 10.10am, took an hour to get to mueselium. Very impressive and well worth the wait. Gardens are beautifully.

According to our guide Ho Chi Mings body has already been to Russia to be ‘ restored’ earlier in the year. So as far as I know you’ll be able to see him in his mausoleum. Enjoy😊
