Hanoi Part 3 2011

Last Day in Hanoi , we walk around Hanoi City .........

First we visit the grave of HO CHI MINH and his residential place..........
The queue is damm damm long .........what really impress me is that Hanoi's people are so so semangat patriotic unlike we Malaysian.

Every weekend , lots of Vietnam citizen lineup to pay respect to HO CHI MINH. Most Malaysian don't even know where our 1st Prime Minister is buried.

These people really respect him and what he did for the country.
