Ho Chi Minh led the Viet Minh Independence movement in Vietnam from 1941 through the end of his tenure as President of North Vietnam and Chairman and First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Vietnam in 1965. North and South Vietnam were reunified in 1976 and the former capital of South Vietnam, Saigon, was renamed Ho Chi Minh City (although, we've found that many people still call it Saigon).
The park holds almost 250 varieties of plants and flowers from all regions of Vietnam. The pathways are lined with beautiful pots of topiaries, defining areas of the park and offering their own contribution to the serenity and beauty of this place.
Ho Chi Minh Park is centrally located in Hanoi, surrounded by museums, temples, government buildings, embassies, and the convention center.
