For whatever reason, this is only open a few hours a day. But the grounds are open...and are interesting and beautiful. I recommend it, even if it is closed.

Interesting to see the body of Ho Chi Minh. But it is the most crowded tourist spot I have been in Vietnam. So you should calculate almost 1 hour of waiting time abs then you can see Ho Chi Minh for about 2 minutes. No...More

It's opened in the morning so I guess its better to visit in the morning or else you'll only get to see the outside of the Mausoleum!

Infinite grandeur, only the quietness of outer space would be enough to return to visit it. Gardens well kept, guards that check with kindness and education. We will return to visit the tomb inside that was closed that day.

The way they have preserved the body of the founder of the nation. The reverence with which they still hold him speaks volumes about the culture and inner self of the Vietnamese people. That they are a sturdy lot with determination and ability to fight...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😊
