Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum sign meaning

by chizz

Hi there
Can anyone help me with the translation of the sign at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. It reads "Nuoc cong hoa xa hoi chu nghia viet nam muon nam! Chu tich Ho Chi Minh vi bai song mai trong su nghiep cua chung ta!" Forgot to ask our guide and now it's bugging me!

My transaltion version is not going to be the most accuarate one but somehow it may help provide you with the meaning of the slogan. What the slogan means is that "Long Life the Socialist - Republic of VIetnam! President Ho Chi Minh's memory will live forever in our work.
I remember slogans like the one you posted in your query used to be painted on the walls of schools and many posters in parks during 1980s. But it seems to be fading out a bit or disappearing in the youths awareness.

Bear in mind that things like this are common in Communist countries. That makes us diffeence LOL. I love it. :=)

"Nuoc cong hoa xa hoi chu nghia viet nam muon nam! Chu tich Ho Chi Minh vi [d]ai song mai trong su nghiep cua chung ta!"

I notice a sight error on your quote and made the change, which is marked with []

My version is very similar to Loc's but slightly different:

"Long live the Socialist-Republic of Vietnam. The Great President Ho Chi Minh will live forever in our work."

Thanks also for your reply - could not see the sign very well as I kept pausing a video I had taken and I also have bad eyes!

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Yes, No, Yes, No

by hientonkin

Rule No 1: When a Vietnamese say Yes. Dont take it as YES.
Dont put out a question like " You dont have it for sales,do you?"
Most of people will say YES - which actually mean You are right, i dont have it for sales!
Or they will say NO - which means NO, you are not right, WE HAVE IT FOR SALES!!

Ok, it can be very confusing..... So be patient and repeat your question. It sounds silly, but you better be sure, do not give up.

Again, when someone say Yes to everything you said. It does not mean Yes, he/she may not understand but still saying yes. It's dangerous and you may end up having arguments if you are buying something from them.

Rule No 2: When you say something, people keep smiling and nodding. it may means THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
Vietnamese will not usually say " I dont understand". So make sure to say something in between of the conversation like " do you know what I mean?"

Trekking Cat Ba National Park

by munapong

There is a half-day and full-day trek @ Cat Ba National Park. The full day trek brings you to Viet Hai Village while the half-day trek allows you to trek to 3 peaks at the park. During the period of May-Jun, the path is pretty slippery, so take note when you do trekking.

Handicraft products

by Applelyn about Local Crafts

I like its pottery. The quality of its product is good and the prices are reasonable for its quality. The earthly and pastel colours can soothe your senses. You can consult them on how to decorate your gardens and homes. The stoneware especially the fountains. It is very unique. Depending on the products, from USD2.

A great way to see the city.

by sporty_chick00

The prices are good, about 2-5 us$ for a ride. bargaining with the rider will help. ;-) It is a wonderful way to see hanoi from the roadside, you can hear all the noise, and at times it was even nerve -wracking when the rider manged to worm his way thru tiny gaps in the traffic! Fun!

Delicious French Bread Sandwich (Night Market)

by arni_ph075 about Doner Kebap

The Doner Kebap is actually more of a rolling stall, selling sandwich, they got almost 2 stalls on the weekend night market, one near the Don Xuan Market and the other one in front of Majestic Salute Hotel...

Easy to locate, as they are the only street food seller that wears a chef attire including the cashier.. :-)

One French bread sandwich cost 10,000 dong, big enough for one dinner. On a medium size french bread, its filled with slices of thin layers of meat, picked red cabbage, lettuce and mustards.. If you prefer chili, simply request, they would be very happy to add chili sauce.

Bread is still warm, best to eat immediately, very tasty.
