Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hanoi

See the Hanoi Guide ›
Ba Dinh Square
Vietnam's insider take:

When he died in 1969, Ho Chi Minh was embalmed, in the tradition of great Communist leaders. His mausoleum was modeled after Lenin's in Moscow (and rumor has it that Ho is sent to Russian embalmers for annual touch-ups). He is now on display to the public, lying in a glass box in a simple khaki uniform, and looking a little yellow around the chops. Visitors are not allowed to carry anything while viewing the body. Arrive early to avoid the long lines as people deposit and retrieve their belongings. Tues.–Thurs. 7:30.–10:30 a.m., Sat. and Sun. 7:30–11 a.m.
