  • Local tours in is hanging without walks over Bao Dai Palace officials as well as the Interior of the House has not been displayed to be bulletproof and crashing down but looking out a wheel garden surprisingly Swish, well-maintained walking and it's a good idea to sit down and relax. The toilet is used within the Palace ought to pay, and when it comes to the door of the Makin too poor in iron.

  • Beautiful architecture, very unique. Many good explanations in English as well. I wish there were other complementary exhibitions such as video, to illustrate daily life in the complex
  • Where do I start... I paid 15k dong to enter.. no one checked my ticket. I should have just walked in rather than pay for a bad experience. There are horses on the front roadway of the palace.. one of which was obviously suffering from malnutrition and sleep deprivation. It was pathetic to see both the horse keeper continue to keep the horse out in the sun for work and Asian people who were there on their bus tours use the horse as a prop for their social media pictures and selfies. Pathetic. The palace itself is not spectacular. Older than my grandmas house. Nothing historical about it. Nothing grand or worthy of pictures or your time. Asian children thought they were at home and their parents couldn't care less-meaning during my experience they were running around, pushing things out of place and yelling as if it was an amusement park. I wish I wouldnt have gone and could get my 15k dong back to buy the horse keeper an education on how to handle animals with respect.
  • This place show how VN King life! Way out and way in different, way in from main gate but way out(exit) they show the way pass some shop. Long way to back parking!
  • Historical place... to learn about the old Vietnamese Royal family. Atmosphere is very cool, kind of a special place in Dalat. On the way out is small shopping area, knitting cloth is at reasonable price, around $5 for an unit. Cool!
  • Love this palace. Well preserved inside and outside.
