Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hanoi: 82 reviews and 153 photos
The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is free to enter and is open in winter from 8-11am/in summer from 7.30-10.30am. It is closed on Monday and Thursday. The changing of the guard happens at 11am. First, join the queue to put your bags/cameras through the x-ray machines, then check in any cameras, etc. at the left luggage counter. Resume the queue to enter the Mausoleum with any hats removed, as a mark of respect. The queue will slowly file past the embalmed body of Ho Chi Minh as he lays in a glass coffin, looking very peaceful it must be said!. Be aware that in Nov/Dec, Ho Chi Minh's body is flown to Russia for maintainance.
Note that visitors should be modestly dressed, no shorts or mini-skirts allowed and hands should not be put in pockets, or you will be told off by the guards.
