You are then shepherded in to a line in pairs and led for quite some distance to get to the building where Uncle Ho is. You are led through the tomb and musn't stop or chatter on the way or the guards will move you along.
It is amazing that so many Vietnamese of all ages still line up to visit and pay their respects.

Unfortunately some parts of the complex are guarded and cordoned off, and it's hard to find your way around. For all of our searching, we never found Ho Chi Minh's house. Luckily, English signs helped us on our way to the One-Pillar Pagoda, a popular spot for Vietnamese to visit. The One-Pillar pagoda, built in the middle of a pond supported by a single pillar, is a beautiful site and we felt caught up in the joy of the other visitors.
Visiting the mauseleum is serious business. You must be appropriately dressed (no hats), and you must leave your camera at the entrance. With our expensive digital SLRs, we weren't going to take any chances and thus missed our chance to see an embalmed Uncle Ho. The architecture of the Mausoleum is quite startling, a square grey building rising incongruously from gorgeous green parkland.

Leaving cameras behind, visitors (predominantly Vietnamese) must walk in single file across Ba Dinh Square to climb the red-carpeted stairs into the mausoleum.
