Reunification Palace - Vietnam

-->

-->
Turned into a museum, the Reunification Palace was originally the official residence of the South Vietnam President during the Vietnam War. Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh), was captured by the North Vietnamese army on April 30, 1975. It was the event that the American led war ended, and the start of the communist rule in Vietnam as a whole.The site was also the place of the handing over of power, or known as "The Fall of Saigon".
The Reunification Palace was partially destroyed during the war. North Vietnamese soldiers with their tanks marched on the street and destroyed the gates of the palace. It was reconstructed to its current form in 1966 and is still used for official operations or functions.
Visitors can see the conference rooms and the presidential receiving room. Not only are those rooms open to the public, because even the basement which is the most fascinating part of the building can also be accessed. It holds the telecommunications room, the war room, and some other rooms and tunnels as well.
