Part of the interesting history of colonial Vietnam and the choices made by HCM to not use it as his primary residence. The rest of the grounds are beautiful and represent his presumed accessibility to the people

The propaganda about Ho Chi Minh and the reverance of the tour guides comes to the fore when visiting this site. Do I really need to see his Peugeot 404 or know that hehad 3 separate residences. Someehat interesting but the propaganda gets a bit much.

A beautiful building as you would expect for a Presidential Palace. Ho Chi Minh never lived here preferring a smaller house within the grounds. The colour of the palace is stunning against the greenery. A lovely setting worth a visit.
