Reunification Palace, Ho Chi Minh City: 79 reviews and 184 photos
The former residence of South Vietnam's (former) presidents. It was first breached in 1963 during the coup d'etat in which Ngo Dinh Diem was overthrown and assassinated. It was taken over for good when North Vietnamese tanks crashed through the gates in 1975. It's now a museum, with many of its exhibits kept intact in their pre-1975 state. Oh, and they repaired the gates.
Address: 106 Nguyen Du, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietn
