Impressive monument to Ho Chi Minh. The white-uniformed, goose-stepping honour guard, Ho Chi Minh's cottage, the classic cars that were gifted to him, and other sights too numerous to mention. All absolutely fascinating, and well worth the time..

We visited as part of a walking tour on Friday but th body of Ho Chi Minh area is closed on Fridays. If it’s open you have to arrive before 10.15. It’s still an interesting experience and a must for all visitors.

Nicely preserved French Colonial Masterpiece serving as the place of residence for the President. Ho Chi Minh’s simple wooden house is nearby. Nice governmental building.
