Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum Tours

star-4.5
22 Reviews
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum
One of the most visited attractions in Hanoi, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the final resting place of “Uncle Ho,” the beloved founder of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. He lies here in state, embalmed and in a glass case, with a military honor guard watching over him and the many visitors who come to pay their respects.
 
The Basics
Although Ho Chi Minh requested cremation, with his ashes spread over the north, center, and south of the country, the massive mausoleum was inaugurated in 1975. The imposing granite and concrete edifice was modeled after Lenin’s tomb in Moscow but contains Vietnamese architectural elements, and includes granite, wood, and other material from around the country.
 
Most Hanoi sightseeing tours feature a stop at the Ho Chi Minh Complex and may include stops at other attractions, such as the Temple of Literature, Hoan Kiem Lake, or Tran Quoc Pagoda. Or experience Hanoi like a local on a motorbike tour of the city; add on a cyclo ride, food tour, or a water puppet show for a full experience.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • It’s free to enter the mausoleum, but donations are accepted.
  • All bags must be checked at the entrance.
  • Photos are not permitted; cameras may need to be checked in.
  • Wear respectful clothing; shoulders, arms, and knees should be covered.
  • Once inside the mausoleum, you must walk steadily and you cannot talk, smile, or put your hands in your pockets.
 
How to Get There
The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum forms part of the Ho Chi Minh Complex, at Ba Dinh Square. If you are not visiting as part of an organized tour, the easiest way to reach is by taxi. A number of buses also stop at nearby Le Hong Phong Road, including bus 9, 22, and 34.
 
When to Get There
The mausoleum is closed on Mondays and Fridays and only open in the mornings. It’s usually closed around October and November, when Ho Chi Minh’s body is sent to Russia for maintenance. It’s best to arrive first thing in the morning, before the mausoleum opens at 8am, to wait in line. Otherwise, expect long lines that usually move at a quick pace.
 
Ho Chi Minh Complex
The Ho Chi Minh Complex includes the mausoleum, Presidential Palace, two houses that Ho Chi Minh lived in, Ho Chi Minh Museum, and One Pillar Pagoda. It’s worthwhile to visit all the sites in the complex.
Address: 10 Ngoc Ha Street, Hanoi, Vietnam

Viet nam's small and pleasant capital lies at the heart of the northern Red River Delta, and is a city of lakes, leafy boulevards and open parks with a French colonial feel. Hanoi was founded in 1010, and became the centre of government for the Indochina Union under French rule in 1888. In 1954 it became the official capital of independent Vietnam. Today ancient crumbling buildings dating from the 11th century lie scattered among grand French colonial residences. The streets of the Old Quarter preserve age-old customs, where trade takes one back half a century, and temples, pagodas and monuments reflect the historic character of Vietam.
