Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum
Though the venerable Vietnamese leader requested to be cremated, Ho Chi Minh now resides embalmed inside this imposing, pillared, gray-granite memorial. His resting place is hugely popular, drawing Vietnamese in droves as they pay their respects to the most important figure in contemporary Vietnam. The mausoleum only opens in the mornings, and visitors must abide by a number of rules (these include no hats, no shorts, no photos inside). As much a chance to see the actual remains of a hugely influential leader, the experience of queuing up for entry is also a way of mingling with ordinary Vietnamese.
