Ho Chi Minh’s Stilt House

Not only a significant historical and cultural work, now Ho Chi Minh’s Stilt House has become a tourist destination in Hanoi attracting a lot of tourists to visit. Let’s visit the simple stilt house in the Presidential Palace, where Uncle Ho lived and worked the longest in his revolutionary life!

How Ho Chi Minh’s Stilt house is unique?

Downstairs is a location where meeting and working is a set of easy wooden furniture. The top floor is the bedroom and the office of Uncle. Therefore, visitors walk to the ground will soon see the living room and working place of Uncle.

Visitors walk to the up floor will see the living and working space of Uncle Ho. Inside the stilt house still retain the letters and artefacts in the last days of Uncle Ho live and work here. Despite more than half a century, everything kept well here.

In front of the floor is a fish pond over 3000m2. Visitors will see a lot of fish in the pond of carp, sesame carp, tilapia, etc . Next to the fish pond is a large garden of Uncle Ho. All make a simple but beautiful natural painting where there are many fruit trees and others.

According to experiences tours around Hanoi, the stilt house and Uncle Ho fish pond is the place visitors should come to understand more about President Ho Chi Minh.

The house is designed in the style of a stilt house of ethnic minorities: 10.5m long, 6.2m wide, with two floors.

Uncle Ho’s stilt house is not only of historical significance but also an architectural work bearing Vietnamese cultural identity. Going to visit, we feel very warm and simple, just like his heart, simple but full of immense love.

The scene around Uncle Ho’s stilt house is a harmonious natural space, shady trees, fruits are planted throughout the garden, green flowers and green grass are separate from the noisy urban life.
