    Ho Chi Minh’s birthplace in Hoang Tru, and the village of Kim Lien, where he spent some of his formative years, are 14km northwest of Vinh. Although these are popular pilgrimage spots for the party faithful, there is little to see other than recreated houses of bamboo and palm leaves, dressed (barely) with a few pieces of furniture. From Vinh, you can take motorbike (150,000 VND), or taxi (300,000 VND) to get there.
