"definately well-guarded" Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum Tip by myspices
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hanoi: 85 reviews and 161 photos
We were told earlier by the guide that we were not able to view the embalmed body of Uncle Ho as it is closed for 3months each year while HCM's embalmed body is being sent to Russia for maintenance. We were rather disappointed. Nevertheless, we still opt to go over to get a glimpse of the the mausoleum - HCM's final resting place. Guards were stationed at the entrance and we were lucky in the sense that we witnessed the changing of guard outside the mausoleum.
