It rained the day we visited but we toured the grounds anyway with hundreds of other visitors. Lots of history and very interesting place to visit.
Not far from his Mausoleum, it is interesting to see how this great little man lived . Cute the garage with the 2° hand cars. His house on stilts , bedroom , study.

Nice to get a brief glimps of where uncle Ho lived and worked in a building behind the old French palace. Check the opening times as from memory it is closed from 11am till 3pm on weekdays.
