This Lenin statue in a park at Nguyen Thai Hoc avenue is one of the few remains I saw of a recent communist past here in Vietnam. Now it seems Sony neon advertising are prefered to those old sovietic symbols... the signs of the times!

As city is very busy and not spacious overall, Lenin statue and park is nice place where You can just sit down and relax a little. As Lenin statues are becoming more unique in world, then its worth to visit

Lovely park with a large statue of Lenin, the area is a local haven, resting, skating, picnics and all the local kids playing. Nice for a sit and watch the action.
