Expansive gardens with wonderful statues, bonsai trees, gold fish, lilies... displays of the artwork of Thanh Chuong and places to contemplate the beautiful views. Several temples with statues of Buddha and great views over the peaceful countryside and the mountains beyond. This is a cultural place, not a political one, which is also nice. It's not far from the airport... More

if you love history and curious about Vietnamese culture, you definitely have to check this place out. It is not far away from downtown. it was placed in a quite, peaceful and friendly neighborhood. going to this attraction was like going back to the past and experiencing the smell, the taste and the feeling of Vietnam 40 years ago.

I returned to Hanoi for the first time in 17 years and was so delighted and moved by this lovely relatively new spot. I think it is a can't miss attraction, and super easy to get to to or from the airport! I could not believe how accessible the art and religious objects were. The trust they place in the... More

What is this place ? Who made it and what for ? It was a good idea certainly but the result is disappointing. It is lifeless. The exhibits in the museum lack explanation. The restaurant did not serve food which might have been a good thing due to the pervading smell of mould in the premises. But we were starving... More

If you land in Noi Bai International Airport and planning to get a taxi, ask them to make a detour to this place. It's only 15 minutes away and will save you a lot of money later. Or better yet, go on your way back to the airport if you have time. Otherwise, it'll cost about $40 for a return-trip... More

First off: this is NOT a "palace"- at least not by typical standards. It's really more of a tiny, reproduction village- or maybe you could call it a compound. You will not find this attraction listed in Lonely Planet (not sure about Frommer's.) In fact, we knew nothing about it until it was recommended to us. It is basically a... More

I enjoyed the visit to the palace we paid about £5 and had a brilliant tour guide just for the twe of us. He spoke excellent English and his knowledge was great not only of the palace but of Vietnam history had a great day. Woman and men will not get in if their shoulders are not covered a wrap... More

We are on a small group tour of Vietnam (6 people) and the Palace was on our agenda today. It seemed to be a "time filler" as we were catching a late flight out of the Hanoi airport and the Palace is only about 15 minutes from there. We were all very pleasantly surprised. It is one man's private collection... More
