This is a nice park and open area you should visit. I walk here from the old quarter by taking any of the major streets. If you want, you can then get over to West Lake and make a day of it. The historical site...More

With a guide, which I strongly recommend you use, we walked around the grounds and the front of the mausoleum. Visited the stilt house where he lived rather than in the palace, the meeting room, the lake and the cars he used. All beautifully maintained...More

A must see when visiting Ho Chi Minh tomb. Next door and worth a visit. Later in the day when it's quieter no long tour around around.

Lovely building in an amazing colour, apparently due to weather protection. Immaculate gardens, and lake complete with huge Koi Carp. Along side the palace are the very modest and humble working and living quarters of President. In the court yard are the Presidents cars, one...More
