This place is so surreal, you really need to visit. Seeing the guy, Ho Chi Minh right there in front of you is one of the weirder things I have ever seen. Long lines move quick so don't be scared off.

It's a very unique experience and a must see. However be prepared for large crowds, long lines and very military approach to get the line moving. Try to plan your visit not on the weekend where most people come.

We came at 9am and waited for an hour and then came inside to visit Mr. Ho Chi Minh, too many people tried to visit him once in lifetime.

During your trip to Hanoi I highly recommend a short taxi ride to the mausoleum complex. Please check the opening times before travelling there though and the morning seems a better time to visit. The complex itself is very beautiful and you will have plenty of time to stroll around it and look at everything. Ho Chi Minh led his... More

We were really looking forward to seeing Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum, but don't be deceived. We went on a Saturday, maybe a mistake, because it took about 2 hours to get in, where we only had about 2 minutes to just walk through. Which honestly is enough time to see, but the locals in line were pushy and it was... More

Interesting, but felt like a fish out of water, with the local crowds and Chinese tourists in full force. We were given quite a few frowns, and felt uncomfortable at times but were determined to see it through. Not a pleasant experience and probably could of spent our time doing something else more enjoyable.

We believed this was a must see sight in Hanoi, but on arrival we found massive queues which are guide estimated were 2 hours long. We decided to forgo the Mausoleum, and only visited Ho Chi Minh's 2 nearby homes. Again queues but somewhat smaller. We have given the attraction 2 stars as obviously it is of significant cultural importance... More

An orderly, somber visit to the Mausoleum - well worth the experience. Sleeves covered and long trousers for men obligatory. Get there early, it all closes at 11.00. Considerate provision of a canopy to protect from sun while queuing. Drink lots - not allowed to carry water in. Very efficient camera transfer - not allowed in Mausoleum, but is allowed... More

Ho Chi Minh's body is taken to Russia for two months towards the end of the year, where it is examined and restored to good condition by experts, and unfortunately he was still in Moscow during our visit. Not much to see here except for the huge concrete building but the guards keep you well away from it. However we... More
