Vietnam : Presidential Palace & President Ho Chi Minh Stilt House

Vietnam : Hanoi Part 3

During our visit to Hanoi, one of the highlighted place to visit is the Presidential Palace of Vietnam. It is located in the city of Hanoi and was built between 1900 and 1906 to house the French Governor-General of Indochina.

President Ho Chih Minh was a huge influence to Vietnam's independence and economy, and as at today, President Ho Chih Minh still remain in every Vietnamese heart.

- Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum -

Before the visiting time, we were outside the main entrance and Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is located nearby and facing the field. Yearly event will be held here as a remembrance of the past president.

- Presidential Palace of Vietnam - 
We were not allowed to go near to the Presidential Palace. The palace is still in use and hosts government meetings. It is not open to the public, although one may walk around the grounds for a fee. 

When Vietnam achieved independence in 1954, Ho Chi Minh was claimed to have refused to live in the grand structure for symbolic reasons, although he still received state guests there, he eventually built a traditional Vietnamese stilt house and carp pond on the grounds. His house and the grounds were made into the Presidential Palace Historical Site in 1975. (Wiki)
