This Lenin statue in a park at Nguyen Thai Hoc avenue is one of the few remains I saw of a recent communist past here in Vietnam. Now it seems Sony neon advertising are prefered to those old sovietic symbols... the signs of the times!

Politics aside, and don't forget where you are. Easily accessible to the side of Điện Biên Phủ and opposite the Flag Tower (of which you get a lovely view from here). Backs on to the peaceful (albeit average) Lenin Park.

Statue to honour a mass murderer ? Walk farther up the road. You might find one for Stalin and Polpot as well. Shameful..... Enough to see this, the city has no decency.

You'll pass it on the way to all the HCM stuff so you don't need to go out of your way to get there. What to say, it's a big statue of Lenin, does what it says on the tin. Nice

Was not expecting to see this. Nice to look at and take a pic. But nothing else will only be a 3 star. Opposite the military museum
