Half Day City Tour of Hanoi
Start this fascinating historical tour at Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum, an imposing monument lavishly built using marble and granite, and where the preserved body of 'Uncle Ho' resides. You will then visit Ho Chi Minh's House, where he lived and worked.
The simple and humble house was the home of Ho Chi Minh between 1958 and 1960. The setting is completely tranquil with a view of a lotus pond. Ho Chi Minh’s belongings are on display and you can walk up the steps of his house to see his bedroom. A short walk from the mausoleum is the lotus shaped One Pillar Pagoda, resting on a single stone pillar emerging from the water. Wind your way to the Temple of Literature, the first University for the sons of mandarins, for an overview of Hanoian culture and appreciation of ancient Vietnamese architecture.
