    The enormous Reunification Palace is worth a visit. The grounds are extensive and you can see many interesting rooms, quite a few containing original furniture. I found the lacquer room beautiful!

    Stop by if you are in the area and enjoy!

    Very nice colonial building located in a central area surrounded by shops and eating places. Combine the visit with Ho Chi Minh Squares and the Opera House. Best visited in the evening and at night when the weather is more agreeable.

    "It’s one of the iconic images of the Vietnam War. Hubert van Es’ snapshot shows a military helicopter perched atop the US Embassy in Saigon as Americans stream up a stairway, desperately boarding the last flight out.

    Except that isn’t a military helicopter, that’s not the US Embassy, those aren’t Americans and that wasn’t the last flight out.

    And, perhaps most surprising of all, the photo is not about defeat.

    “As I was researching it, I found that almost everything I had assumed about that photo was wrong,” historian and author Thurston Clarke tells The Post."

    Not sure if we would have found this without our guide, but so glad we went. This building is a remarkable piece of history, and you can even climb down into the cellar and up into the attic. Surprised that our 13 year-old daughter really connected with this place.
