Reunification Palace

The Reunification Palace is one of Saigon's most popular tourist attractions.

Saigon's Reunification Palace was designed by Ngo Viet Thu for South Vietnam's former President, Ngo Dinh Diem, during the American War. The official handover of power took place here on April 30, 1975 and the place became a monument to that fateful date. The highlight is the basement that looks like a wartime movie set. Near Reunification Palace is 30-4 Park, one of the better HCMC green spaces. We recommend you to buy some food or drinks in one of the nearby restaurants, then enjoy it in the shade, on one of the park's benches.

Reunification Palace was once known as Independence Palace before the fall of Saigon to communists. Arguable the most famous moment in its history was in April 1975 when tanks broke through the main gates. Inside, be sure to check out the command bunker dotted with creaky radio equipment and tactical maps pinned to the walls. Put Reunification Palace near the top of your must-see HCMC sights.

The Reunification Palace is located within walking distance from several other point of interests. You can go from there to the Saigon's Post Office or the Notre Dame Cathedral. If you want to do some shopping, it is also not far from the luxury department store Diamond Plaza.
