The building does not inspire poetry when you see it from the outside. However the rooms inside are interesting. Don't expect a palace in the traditional sense. It is more like a grand government office building.

There is nothing much to see at this place except for basic view of office/meeting rooms of the top beaurocrats of Vietnam.

Gorgeous grounds. Fantastic rooms. Loved the bunker. Amazing ornate furniture. Great historical background and there is lots to learn about the life of the Vietnamese during their fight against America.

The Reunification Palace is an interesting landmark that symbolizes important historical events around the fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War. This is definitely a must see when in Ho Chi Minh.

My friend and I were sightseeing around Ho Chi Minh and the reunification/independence palace was on the list of places we had to see. The palace had beautiful grounds and was very interesting to walk around and explore.

Enjoyed seeing the Palace and grounds-worth a look-useful short information in each room in English. probably not worth getting the audio guide

The Palace was not so exciting, it only shows some rooms that once used to have an important function but it hasn't been used since the end of seventies. Wasn't impressed, lots of dated furniture that comprise anything. Wouldn't go there, spend some extra time at the war remnant museum instead.
