Ho Chi Minh was a revolutionary who later became president of the Republic of Vietnam, he died in 1969 and his body is till on display to the public in a huge granite mausoleum Hanoi the capital of Vietnam which was modeled of Lenin’s Tomb in Moscow. He wouldn’t be too happy lying there like a wax model as he really wanted to be cremated and spread over the hilltops of Vietnam. Thousands of people pass through the mausoleum to honor the man or just to take a look. If planning a visit there are strict rules on clothing and what you can take with you. No cameras and no talking- you must keep walking and don’t stop, this is all part of respect. The mausoleum is open every morning but in November he is taken away for a bit of a makeover.
