Ho Chi Minh Stilt House: Exterior

Ho Chi Minh believed the Hanoi Presidential Palace was too grand and hence when he became president of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1954, he had a modest wooden structure built in a corner of the Presidential Palace's extensive grounds. This structure, known as the Ho Chi Minh Stilt House or as Nha San Bac Ho or Uncle Ho's Stilt House, was modeled on a two story ethnic minority stilt house.

  1. I like the wooden structure of this house. They can actually add awnings to protect the front portion of the house from extreme heat.

  2. I love this house. I would love to buy a townhouse in this kind of area. I am pretty sure that this house uses a very high quality timber flooring. I'd love to see the interior portion of this house. flooring perth
