Set in a very green and peaceful part of ho chi minh city, not too far from war remnants museum. Lovely manicured gardens with grand fountain in front of the impressive palace building. Very interesting to see how the past dignitaries lived. Rooms are beautifully preserved and helpful information boards describe history and details of each room. The focus of... More

Entry to the palace was cheap considering how much history, information and beauty was on display. VND $30,000 per person without a tour (which isn't really needed anyway due to the information provided in each room) gives entry to all areas and the gardens. Rooms were fully furnished and kept the feel and look of the era, a beautifully kept... More

30,000 VND per person for entry, the Reunification Palace was quite a nicely adorned place, but eventually was just room after room of furnishings. The history behind the palace and the fall of the Republic of Vietnam are interesting, but the entire trip should not take more than half an hour, photo taking inclusive.

We stopped here as part of a tour. We are travelers that would much rather see local living and culture vs. a museum, so suffice it to say we found the stop only so-so. There are very detailed descriptions of each room, and there are many rooms you are able to see. If you are into that sort of stuff... More

This 1960's era building was never used as the Presidential Palace since, after reunification, Hanoi became the center of government. However, the building was (and still is) used frequently for state dinners and ceremonial events. The rooms are beautifully furnished and maintained in a mid-century style. Don't miss a visit to the basement bunkers, still furnished with their original war... More

As an American I found the tour of this building fascinating. I really enjoyed seeing the rooms with the war plans.

Anyone who grew up in the 1960's and early 70's must visit this place - I've always wanted to see where the 'American' War finally ended with the iconic front gates and the famous tank! Worth a couple hours to see the fabulous interior and surprisingly a helo on its roof. Try and visit with a guide who has a... More

Loved the history of the building. The grounds are amazing considering it's in the centre of Ho Chi.

Touch base with a slice of time. The Reunification Palace is the old RVN Presidential palace. You know, the one with the iconic picture of the NVA tank on the lawn when Saigon fell. The palace is perfectly preserved and has some great displays of its roll in history. Its on all of the tours and is free

It is worth exploring with your guide - if you have one. The history that surrounds this building is amazing, and it is good to understand the role it played in both Saigon and the reunification of Vietnam.
