Wish the old building was still there. New building was ok, very modern on how they live in those days. Lots of photos and nice furniture. One time visit would be great. They open a bit late and close early. Sorry, I forgot the time but do enjoy the place.

Well worth a visit. The opulent rooms where history was made; the underground bunker; the helipad at the top - all serve as reminders of a turbulent past. The tanks on the lawn are now museum pieces but it doesn't take a lot of imagination to picture the real thing.

Another building that has deep impact on Vietnamese history, especially during the Vietnam War. Very well-preserved and has many informative display. We really liked the images of the tanks broke down the gate of the Palace.

It's an interesting window into history. It's hard to believe how technology has changed. Hard to imagine with the bunker equipment a war was won.

interesting view into the past, beautifull reception rooms. Well kept. As expected, clear distinction made between good and bad guys.

It's a big building with a lot of history BUT it's boring for kids and they really drag it out. There needs to be a bit more to the day for me to go back there again

The Reunification Palace is a historically significant site where the north and south battled for supremacy and control of Vietnam. A lot of wheeling and dealing took place inside the palace. it's a nice walk around the premises as well.

Closes very early, so be sure to come early. Almost empty from tourists inside. Only if you are interested in how Vietnamese president lived: very...modestly! Was freely walking everywhere and taking pics. Rooftop has a ball room and heliport with a helicopter. Cute. Then went to the bunker - really stuffy and depressing place full of old machines. The whole... More
