4 Attractions To Visit In Hanoi Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum stands out from its surroundings and is the final resting place of Ho Chi Minh, a famous Vietnamese communist revolutionary leader who was prime minister and then president of the country. This marble building could be described as the Holy Grail of the Vietnamese, with thousands every year making a pilgrimage to the site to see the body of Ho Chi Minh encased in its glass sarcophagus.

Visitors may also get a glimpse of the changing of the guard at the mausoleum, which is similar to the process that takes place at Buckingham Palace.
