The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is one of the most important landmarks in the city, and the final resting place of their Revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh.

The Mausoleum is nice for photographs during the day, but I preferred it at night. There are security around and they won’t let you use a tripod so you may have to either up your ISO, or get lower to the ground and use your bag. When taking pictures during the day you may catch the guards marching which is interesting to watch.

Best time for pics: Blue Hour/night

Long Bien Bridge, a bridge across the Red River connecting two armies, Hoan Kiem and Long Bien. It was once the second longest bridge in the world (only after the Brooklyn Bridge over the East-River in the US), even called the horizontal Eiffel Tower of Hanoi.
The bridge has witnessed two long-term resistance wars of our nation, the resistance against the French colonialists and the resistance against the US imperialists.
