Ho Chi Minh’s stilt house is a historic site which is in Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum’s campus. According to the data, the president required to build a stilt in Hanoi because when being in Viet Bac base, he only stay at stilt. On the war time, Ho Chi Minh was accustomed to simple life with the locals. When going back to Hanoi, he and architect Nguyen Van Linh discussed about building a stilt (Nguyen Van Linh was the person who designed Ba dinh Square). The architect designed the stilt according to Ho Chi Minh’s idea. His house was built with wood, it had bedroom, kitchen, dining room and guest room. The stilt was 10,5 m of length and 6,2m of width. It included 2 floors. The 2nd floor has 2 rooms, the other was used to meet the guest. Hence, the house had 3 rooms with the modest area. The architect was also sophisticated when designing the house that it can get the sunshine in the morning and Ho Chi Minh president can see the sunset in the afternoon.
