We loved the design of of this place. The architecture is modern, but tasteful and steeped in recent history. Go there. A must see in HCMC.

We spent an hour in the palace, we were able to walk around all the floors and even into the underground tunnels and the helipad on the roof. It was Truely amazing to be stood in the palace and see the rooms which lay untouched since he end of the war. It did get very hot as no air conditioning... More

I recommend a visit to the Palace. There is a plane and tank in the grounds , the gardens and fountain are beautiful The Palace ,built by the French , is very interesting still housing original furniture and the war rooms in the basement fascinating. The history is very interesting so I recommend a tour

This was very cheap to get a ticket. An easy walk from centre of town. Expansive gardens & fountain, a couple of tanks on display outside, and a grand building. The architecture is classic 60's, inside is fairly plain and furnishings very retro. The design of the building is great for the climate and allows the cool breeze to circulate;... More

We stopped by after our visit to the War Remnants Museum. Definitely worth a stop. Make sure you take in the view from the roof (there is a helicopter there) as well as the rooms in the basement (shooting gallery). Enjoy

My Vietnam War history knowledge allows me to rarely need a guide unless I want to pay for one. They are available, but I chose to walk around by myself. After walking around outside viewing the grounds and some military hardware I went inside the palace. There is a recommended walking path and countless signs that made navigating the building...

They destroyed a pretty nice looking colonial palace and built this imperial concrete thing in it's place but I guess it was the fashionable thing to do at the time. There's not too much opinion about the place for a change so it's quite an easy place to visit after somewhere like the war museum. The interior decor style is... More

Set over 4 enormous floors plus the bunker rooms this certainly could take a half day on its own. To listen to the stories of this Palace and to actually view the rooms as they were set up was a worthwhile visit. The bunker rooms with the modern technology of the day was amazing. To stand on the verandah and... More

Go have a look just to see how the president lived in the 1970s. Most of the palace is original and the underground bunker is still as it was in its day.
