Queen Nam Phuong Palace

You would assume that Dalat’s Queen’s Palace – officially named Nguyen Huu Hao (the queen’s father) Palace or Queen Nam Phuong Palace – would be inferior Bao Dai’s Palace (Bao Dai was the last king of Vietnam). Surprisingly, this smaller, less drab counterpart presents a more homely and livable atmosphere. It’s pretty standard as far as royal French-influenced colonial homes go, but the more feminine décor and brighter colors make this less of a politician’s base of operation and more of a summer house for royalty.

The Lam Dong Museum ticket for VND 10,000 includes the Queen Palace so may as well take a peek. If you’ve seen Bao Dai’s palace then you won’t find anything new here – this is a smaller, more colorful alternative. The palace was built in the 1930s as a gift from the queen’s father. If you’re fascinated by how wealthy Vietnamese lived in the early 20th century, you’ll enjoy the various pieces of silverware and entertainment on display.
