This is my favourite thing in HCM. The building alone is absolutely incredible & the interiors are all still there, making it a very interesting place to visit. Plenty of information in English

Some impressive rooms in this James bond type building. You can picture the way it would've been. Well signed and doesn't take forever to look at the whole place (we took 1hr). You are allowed to take photos throughout and even have a beer on the rooftop bar. The pool table has no pockets so we didn't play... Worth a... More

Good overall experience. I liked that you could walk round freely and everything was explained on plaques about each room.

Very interesting place to visit and could have spent a lot more time there had it not been so hot inside.

Interesting place to visit it is well set out with lots of historic images. I remembered seeing the tanks break down the gates in 1975 and the chaos that ensued. It was great to visit the place where it had happened. The underground area is worth seeing too.

Maybe I was just a little toured and museumed out by the time we visited Reunification Palace but to be honest I found it a little bit of an anti-climax to be honest. we didn't do a tour and maybe this was one of the reasons I didn't engage with this place like other attractions that we visited, but I...

Our hotel wasn't far from here but we arranged a guided city tour and this was first port of call. So interesting and steeped in history. Well worth a good one hour visit.

Anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh must not miss this awesome place. A time capsule from 1975 kept in perfect condition. Best is the basement, like a James Bond set.
