This is a must attraction to visit when in Ho Chi Minh city. Full of brilliant artifacts from the Vietnam War. Beautiful grounds. Be aware its is closed between 11.30 and 1.30pm like many of the tourist attractions in the city.

Very interesting to see how proud the Vietnamese people are of their unified country. We went to the palace with students from Saigon hotpot and it was lovely to hear all about the building and how very proud they were that Vietnam is now one country.

We were hassled through the palace at a rate of knots!! We weren't able to view everything slowly. It wasn't apparent why! However it's something not to be missed as one of the sights of the city but not outstanding in our opinion.

The palace allows you to view hidden tunnels and other areas of great significance. Well worth a visit for a hour or two.

Probably the best "museum" type attraction in the city, giving insight into the conflict between the North and South. It's fun getting lost in the multiple passages and hallways around the building itself. Also check out the displays outside (but no, those aren't THE original tanks). Should be on your list of touristy things to do. And if you get... More

This palace has seen so much history in its relatively short life. It was built by the fraudulent first president of South Vietnam, Diem, who was assassinated on the day before he was to move into the new facility. He was replaced by Duong Ban Minh and his family and they lived there off and on the Northern troups stormed... More

A beautiful building with some amazing furnishings. I would definitely do this as part of a day tour with other things so you have a guide to take you through and explain all the different rooms and the history of the 2 buildings. The lower basement levels are pretty cool to go through. The fountain in the front yard kinda... More

You can take a tour or see it on your own for a quicker look. Worth seeing the helicopter on the roof used to evacuate US personnel. Check opening times as it is closed during lunch.

The reunification palace is quite an interesting place to visit, lot's of photos, secret bunkers of the south vietnamese army, and a place where history was made. It's not necessary to pay for a tour, but it wouldn't hurt if you want to know more about it.

Very interesting, The building and furniture are original, but the highlight is the bunker it has the original telecommunication equipment. If you only have limited time walk quickly through the top floors although the view from the roof is cool. You must visit the bunker that is where everything comes to light and makes you think of what happend from... More
