Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum

Known for honouring the national hero: President Ho Chi Minh, this is the number one tourist attraction as well as an important historical sight in Hanoi. Inspired by the Lenin's Mausoleum in Moscow it was built within two years from 1973 to 1975. It is only open on limited time so prepare for very long queues. If you are lucky you might catch the changing of the guard outside the mausoleum.

Do & See

Visit Hanoi and you will find white French villas next to temples and monuments. The Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum is one of the most visited attractions in the country and should not be missed. Hanoi Old Quarter is another must to witness Hanoi at its liveliest moments: flows of people and motorbike permeate all through out the streets.
