The Reunification Palace is located on the area where the Norodom Palace was formerly erected way back during the French colonial period. The French governor resided there and during Japanese occupation, it became also their headquarters. The Palace was destroyed during the Vietnam War when an aircraft bombed the left wing of the palace. It was then replaced by the current structure which was occupied by then President of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. It was the site of the end of the Vietnam War during the Fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975, when a North Vietnamese Army tank crashed through its gates. The communist North Vietnam and its allies in South Vietnam established the provisional government there and thereafter renamed the palace, Reunification Hall.

This Hall has a lot of convention halls, entertainment room, meeting room, war room, ballroom (im serious) and the President's office.
