Independance Palace

Address : 135 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, Ben Thanh, Quan 1

Since its construction, the building has gone through several renovation. A major work was undertaken from 1962 to 1963, which made the President change his office temporarily to Gia Long Palace, which is now the location of Ho Chi Minh City Museum. Much political turbulence led to the come and go of several South Vietnam President, until 1975 when the war officially ended and Vietnam became one country.

* Whilst big in terms of grounds the Palace is really a simply building with heaps of history. The rooms are well laid out with plenty of options to see from different vantage points. Bunker area the most interesting especially looking at all the old maps. An interesting place for all to see, it's a trip back in time respected.
