  • Mai Dich National Cemetery - cemetery established after French occupation ended in 1954 in Hanoi as a place of worship for heroes of the people. Those buried here include statesmen, writers, poets, and others who have close ties to Vietnam's current government.
  • Mạc Đỉnh Chi Cemetery - Located in the heart of former Saigon, Mac Dinh Chi was South Vietnam's most prestigious French colonial cemetery reserved for celebrities, politicians and the upper class. Ngo Dinh Diem and his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu were interred here. In the early 1980s, Vietnam's communist government declared the place a corrupt reminder of the past and dissolved the cemetery by 1983. In accordance to communist laws, bodies in Mac Dinh Chi were exhumed, cremated and given to remaining family members whenever possible. A theme park was built on top of the cemetery to erase all traces of the past.
