Worth a visit for the checklist traveler passing through. For those sticking around, you'll want to visit as well...there's just no hurry. As noted, it is supremely eerie. Whether you really think it is him or not (and most locals I know think not), there is an unmistakable sense of reverence throughout. It is about more than just historical significance here. Traditional Vietnamese beliefs concerning ancestors, spirits, and the dead can make this much more than a museum piece for those visitors. You can feel the tension in the room. The downside is the wait time to actual viewing time ratio. You are ushered through rather quickly. On the plus side, the grounds all around are enjoyable and quiet leisurely. As some have noted, the flag raising and lowering ceremonies are worth being around for.

Seeing Ho Chi Minh lying in state was very interesting. We were made to walk a little too quickly compared to the other leaders we have seen - was a little disrespectful. The complex is really interesting and worth a visit on a sunny day.

One of the most important buildings in Hanoi is the mausoleum where the embalmed body of Ho Chi Minh is displayed. He was the prime minister and president of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) and played a key role in the early part of the Vietnam War. Visitors are allowed to go into the mausoleum in the morning between 9 and 12 but – be warned – there is often a long wait. There are also strict rules in place, including a dress code. You’ll also have to leave your camera at the security office before you’re allowed to go in. It’s an eerie but quick experience once it’s your turn to enter. You have to continue walking the whole way through as you go around the body and can’t stop for a proper look. Guards will hurry you along if it looks like you’re about to pause.
