One of things that you must do while you are in Hanoi
By Hanoi Local Guide

Visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum can be a little bit hard when in the hot weather (specially in July), the queues to visit this place that holds the embalmed remains of Ho Chi Minh can get quite long and sometimes looks like be interminable but still worth seeing. Be aware of the time if opens only in the morning from 8 to 11am and from tuesday to thursday.

As consider the holiest sites in Vietnam they have a dress code: it is not allowed to wear shorts and sleeveless shirts (as the weather in this time of the year is too hot a scarf is a good option to cover your body). Cameras is not allowed they collect all cameras before you enter the mausoleum (so if you have a massive one just live it in your hotel or in the luggage storage place). While you are inside, don't talk loudly and take off your sunglasses and cap. Admission into the Mausoleum is free.
