“Palace”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

It was interesting to visit and see the gates that were smashed down that ended the Vietnam war. To many steps to get around the palace and it is showning its age

Very spectacular building, with some impressive design and interesting displays. Do not give up until you make it to the rooftop disco complete with helipad!

“Excellent place to learn about general Vietnam history.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The Reunification Palace's located at the center of HCM city and is a very good place for whom interesting in history. Although the architecture looks quite normal, from inside there're a lot of things associate with Vietnamese culture and many things about the American war. It's really worth to have a look.
