Hanoi’s prison Hao Lo was used by the French colonists in Vietnam for political prisoners, and later by North Vietnam for U.S. prisoners of war during the Vietnam War. This was the time when it sarcastically became known as the ‘Hanoi Hilton’.

The temple of literature was Vietnam’s first national university, built in 1070.

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the final resting place of Vietminh leader Ho Chi Minh. It was completed in August 1975 and inspired by Lenin’s Mausoleum in Moscow. The embalmed body of Ho Chi Minh is preserved in the cooled central hall of the mausoleum, which is protected by military honour guards.
