Ho Chi Minh Trail Museum Lonely Planet review

The Ho Chi Minh Trail Museum is dedicated to the famous supply route from the communist north to the occupied south of Vietnam. The displays, including a barrage of American ammunition and weaponry as well as some powerful photography, document all too clearly the extreme effort and organisation needed to keep the show on the road – and the death and destruction involved. Quite simply, defeat was simply not an option for the VC, whatever the odds.

Things to do in Around Hanoi

The rich alluvial soils of the Red River Delta nurture a rich rice crop and many of the communities surrounding Hanoi are still engaged in agriculture. The contrast between modern Hanoi and the rural villages is stark. Many tour operators in Hanoi offer cycling tours to villages near Hanoi – a great way to discover a different world. Lotussia specialises in cycling tours from Hanoi, some taking in the Thay and Tay Phuong pagodas and nearby handicraft villages. These tours also avoid having to struggle through Hanoi’s ferocious traffic, as a minibus takes the strain through the suburbs.

It’s located about 13km southwest of Hanoi.
