Tourists flock to Ho Chi Minh’s hometown during May

As President Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s great leader, was born in May, many Vietnamese visited his hometown in Sen village, Kim Lien commune, Nam Dan district, in north-central Nghe An province during the month to pay their respects.



The number of tourists visiting Kim Lien is down this year due to the scorching heat and fears over COVID-19, and the relic site’s management board has introduced practical measures to keep tourists safe from the disease.

As summer approaches, the President’s homeland becomes redolent with the mild fragrance of blossoming lotus flowers, a symbol of his simple yet noble life./.
