Great place to visit to learn all about the history of Vietnam's past president. Everything was super clean and tidy.

It is worth a walk around this area- which is lovely in itself- to understand some of the history of the town and country.

The Palace is but a short hop from the Mausoleum. If you are pushed for time, and have to choose, then i would say the Place wins.

There are too many people walking around and you are not allowed to enter the Palace itself. If you have lots of time, then go by all means but otherwise, nothing too interesting
