Tips

  • Go to the basement first to watch the free video about the history about reunification palace. It puts the rest of the tour into context and makes the tour far more rewarding.
  • Opens 730am. Need at least 2 hrs. Start at level 1, watch video before touring various levels. View helicopter on level 5. Use lift to level 4. 30k dong (adults), 3k dong (child). A steal for history!
  • Can organise special dinner at reception hall with nice decoration stage and traditional performance. Such a special gala dinner
  • Simple but stunning architecture. Great rooftop views. Look out for the bombing markings near the helicopter
  • 16:00.
  • The palace is closed for lunch from 12noon-1pm, and is also available for function hire, so the ground floor may not be available to tour. #vietnam #hcmc #museum #attraction
  • It was designed by architect Ng Vit Th.
  • It's like White House of Saigon
  • Tours (in English) every 15 min that take you through the four main levels and the basement too.
  • Le tang d/c Vo Chi Cong
  • You just need to visit the place if you're first time in Saigon. Nothing particularly interesting, just a massive example of Vietcong-Soviet architecture and interior design. Also pretty crowded.
  • , . ! :)
  • Great place to visit if you want to understand Vietnam's history. Check the films in the bunker.
  • Beware of motorcyclists nearby entrance area... They will try to approach you to provide an hour city tour. In the end they are gonna charge you VND1,500,000 per person. Kindly take note.
  • Check out Nha Hang Cafe also inside the campus
  • The "don't judge the book by its cover" motto exists in this place. Its very simple outside but very rich inside. Culture, history and the love for their people.
  • Beautiful architecture
  • Only 30k for The museum and the park. Plenty of information everywhere, check out all the levels from -2 to 5!
  • An interesting place to visit and certainly something cool to see when you visit Ho Chi Minh city. Make sure to visit the bunker in the basement
  • Perspicuous sign guidelines. That view from rooftop is unforgettable.
