From here, you look out on to Hanoi’s most opulent building, the beautiful, Beaux-Arts, Presidential Palace , constructed in 1906 for the Governor General of Indochina. It’s now used for official receptions and isn’t open to the public. Visitors may wander the grounds if you stick to the paths.
There is a combined entrance gate to the stilt house and Presidential Palace grounds on P Ong Ich Kiem inside the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum Complex. When the main entrance is closed, enter from Ð Hung Vuong.
The whole complex has one route you should follow, and there's no benches till the very end, so take care in a hot day. And there's a lost of goldfish in the pool, which you can try feeding
