Mercury Hotel, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum was where our sightseeing started. Standing in the low queue in the freezing weather, we were reminded that before entering the mausoleum, hand phone must be switched off, no camera, no laptop or any other electronic gadgets, Also, no holding hands, laughing and talking, after our bags were scanned, we walked in a single file to see Ho Chi Minh lying in state while the robotic guards stood with raffles to defend their well preserved, wax looking and long gone leader. Indeed, quite terrifying to walk around the narrow aisle for less than 3 minutes to glance at Ho Chi Minh, that was about it all.
Up next - One Pagoda Pillar.
