Presidential Palace and Ho Chi Minh's House on Stilts
Just to the north of Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum sits the presidential palace, appropriated from the French after they were routed and which you can't enter, and Ho Chi Minh's bungalow, often referred to as his House on Stilts.
Set in a stretch of mango tree-filled parkland around a small pond, this is a refreshing spot to take a wander around. Built of polished wood, Ho Chi Minh's bungalow has a light and airy feel, or as the brochure reads Uncle Ho's House on Stilts is a symbol of his simplicity and gentleness. There are only some rooms here, but all of them are full of wind, light and fragrance from the garden... There's also a display of the first president's collection of 'used cars'.
