We came here after 4pm, the mausoleum was closed for entrance (it’s open 8-11hrs), but it was a great opportunity to take pictures in the front of it as there were not many people there.

So cool to see the old man. Quite a line to get in and they herd you through pretty quick but totally worth it.

It’s surreal to leave the heaving busy streets of Hanoi and enter this peaceful oasis in the noise. You can see the admiration and respect the people of Hanoi and Vietnam have for HCM and you really get an understanding of his place in the...More
