President Ho Chi Minh lived and worked in Thailand, including Nakhon Phanom province, in the late 1920s.

The memorial site was inaugurated in Na Chok village on May 19, 2016, coinciding with the 126th birth anniversary of the beloved leader. It is connected to the Thai-Viet friendship village by a road, forming a cultural and historical tourism complex in Nakhon Phanom.

This is not only a place where tourists and Vietnamese in Thailand come to offer incense to President Ho Chi Minh on special holidays, but has become a cultural – tourist – historical venue that holds great significance, symbolizing the long-standing relationship and friendship between the two countries.
