An interesting place if you enjoy local culture and history. The lines moved with coordinated ease. We enjoyed touring around on foot. There is plenty to see and its easy to get around. If you have time, this is a good stop.

This seemed like a must visit locale in Hanoi. The building itself is beautiful as is the landscaping and surroundings which one can wander after visiting the mausoleum. There are guards everywhere asking visitors to remain silent approaching and through the main building. Honestly, there...More
