A wonderful place to visit the final resting place of such a compassionate man. Rest his soul. Make certain you visit his final home which is located in the back of his mausoleum.

The queue/line may go down the road, around the corner and down another street, but don't be put off. It moves very quickly. Visiting Uncle Ho is a bit macabre but sharing the whole experience with thousands of Vietnamese is fascinating and well worth doing....More

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😊
