The reunification palace used to be the presidential palace when Saigon was the capital of south Vietnam.
Itīs in my opinion a pretty ugly building and also not the most interesting building to see inside, but there is a lot of history to it, so i still recommend that you pop by there anyway.
The most interesting thing about the palace are actually the two tanks parked outside the palace as they were the two tanks that officially ended the Vietnam war by driving through the gates to the palace.
If you donīt want to pay the entrance to the palace then you can easily see it from the pavement, but entrance fees in Vietnam are small so you might wanna go in there even if itīs not the biggest sight in town.
