Plan your visit otherwise it will be too crowded and you have to queue for everything. Well preserve item i.e the car, house and palace. The overall visiting journey is about 10-15 mins

I was amazed by the choice of colour in painting the Ho Chi Minh Presidential Palace. Cant missed it as you visit the area and its historical value especially for Uncle Ho as they call him.
