Built as a representation of a traditional stilt house in 1958 for then-president Ho Chi Minh, who preferred the gardener's hut to the opulent Presidential Palace, located next door. The simple, but elegant house contains only a bedroom and study.
The simplicity of the small house, set beside a pond in a leafy garden, reflects Ho's humble beginnings and makes a great place to escape the crowds and meditate on Uncle Ho's life and the recent history of Vietnam.
Well hidden within the garden in the entrance to Ho's bunker, where he and his staff could shelter from the intensive air bombardment of Hanoi during the war. The bunker is so well concealed, that only a tour guide will be able to pin-point it.
