Gary, I believe the mausoleum is open 8 - 11am Tues - Thursday. Traveling in Vietnam is easy depending upon how much you want to spend. There is the train, Reunification Express from Hanoi to HCM but flights are quite cheap with Jetstar Pacific and Vietnam Airlines. The other option is Open Tour buses which are offered by many companies but Sinh Tourist (formerly Sinh Cafe) are generally more reliable and comfortable. The fare from Hanoi to HCM is around US$45 but you can get off at many towns along the way and then get back on after a few days and continue your journey (book your seat though). You can also use them for part trips as my wife and I did for the Hue to Hoi An leg at a cost of US$6.

Here Gary...check this out...a billion bits of information to sort through regarding Ha Noi..

My thoughts..if you can afford it check flight costs between your destinations with Vietnam Airlines..its faster,not overly expensive, and gets you to your destinations mush faster allowing MORE time to enjoy your time in Vietnam...I used them for a few legs of a journey from tip to tip in January and by far it was way more comfortable than my experience using a bus or train..

If you've only got one day in Ha Noi I would try to catch a performance of the Water Puppets..its pretty unique.

Gary,

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum opening time: Open from Tuesday to Thursday and weekends from 8am to 11pm. Closed on Mondays and Fridays. The mausoleum is closed for two months of the year, usually October and November, when Ho Chi Minh’s body is maintenance.
you seem to be having very short time in Vietnam. It will be pity if you miss some "must-see" places like Halong bay, Sapa, Hoi An, Nha Trang.

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Money

by explorer001

When you're in Hanoi, or any areas nearby, use Vietnamese Dongs. They're accepted anywhere, anytime - If they don't, don't give them business. :-)
In hotels, although they prefer USD, the donggers are accepted.
I got 1.6 million dong for USD 100 (Jan 07) - Instant millionaire. :-)

ROCK SCULPTURE

by balhannah

In Hanoi, I came across what is in my photo, and never knew what they were!

Then, one day, on a tour to the Silk Village, the "Rock Sulpture" in the photo was there, so I asked the guide about it.
He said that a lot of companies buy them to put in their Office gardens.

I also saw a lot of sculptures made out of wood stumps.

Trekking on Cat Ba Island

by King_Golo

Cat Ba Island is the biggest island in Halong Bay. This makes it an ideal spot for a visit, especially if you want to know how all these limestone rocks look from above. I'm talking about trekking on Cat Ba Island.
A trekking tour is usually included in a 3-day-trip to Halong Bay. If you've got good footwear and the will and strength to climb up steep, muddy and incredibly slippery trails, you shouldn't miss doing that. It's a lifetime experience. Narrow paths meander through the dense jungle, numerous trees grow rampant, lianae hang directly above your heads - and if you touch them, some tree meters away from you will start to shake strongly. Finally, after a long climb on rusty ladders and rotten roots, you'll reach the top. Turning around 360°, you see green, green and more green. For me, this was a truly magical experience. Jungle itself is great, but seeing it from above is hard to top.
If you plan to trek on Cat Ba Island, don't forget good footwear (water-proof!), a lot to drink and of course your camera.

Le PUB

by hientonkin about Le PUB

Just newly-opened on bustling Hang Be street, Le Pub has already built up quite a "style", mostly due to bi-monthly theme nights that tend to attract a full house. A part -managed here is Dennis, one of the teacher in my university ( Hanoi Open University - Tourism Faculty ). Le Pub also raise fund for worthwhile charities, so it's likely that part of your bill will be going to a good cause.
Le Pub has a remarkably appealing design, with an outdoor area overlooking the street, stools at the bar for solitary drinkers and tables out the back, also has two communal tables which is great for social occasions.
Food is Ok with reasonable prices. Should know the special themes, it would be fun!

Careful of Taxi Meters

by lyrad

I was told that the usual taxi fare for a journey from the old quarter to the Hanoi train station area should normally cost between 20,000 to 40,000 dong. However, more than half our rides turned up higher fares - I was observing how some taxi meters simply jump practically almost every second.

But having said this, I think there's little one can do about this situation.
