Reunification Palace is such a beautiful building. It’s old, yes, but also very historical to the Vietnam War. I visited on my birthday, April 29, the day before Reunification Day. The sky was bright blue and the lines were long, yet we had a great time!
When we first stopped by to visit on April 28 the building was in use for official government business.
The library is my favourite place. Look at that desk – so big. Just think of all the work you could do.
This room was quite neat, too. The glass walls with large curtains are regal and I can only imagine what it would be like to eat dinner or have an important event in this room.
So much detail on this fabric – I just love it.
In all honesty, though, some of the furniture doesn’t look very comfortable. I suppose that so it looks good rather than well used. Makes total sense.
The building is huge and it’s best to walk with the crowd in the one way direction, otherwise you’ll spend too much of your time getting tourists in the middle of all your photos. Or, you’ll be bumping into people unnecessarily if you don’t go with the flow.
The grounds – so pretty.
If you’re in Ho Chi Minh City and have the chance to visit Reunification Palace then go for it. The one part of the tour that I’d skip if you’re short on time is going into the basement and seeing the bomb shelter – although, I’ll admit it was awesome to see the kitchen.
Thanks for stopping by and happy travelling!
