Description

On April 30, 1975, Communist tanks smashed through the gates of what was then the symbol of the South Vietnamese government, and marked the end of the Vietnam war. The palace was formerly known as Independence Palace and was built in 1966 on the site of Norodom Palace. Guides at the renamed Reunification Palace now offer daily tours to visitors. The Palace is also noted for its striking 1960s architecture, the creation of Paris-trained Vietnamese architect Ngo Viet Thu. Included on the tour are visits to conference rooms, the Presidential Receiving Room, basement tunnels and war rooms, a telecommunications center and the residential quarters, as well as a back terrace complete with helipad. A video presentation of Vietnamese history is available in several languages.
