    It's a nice place to visit if you are in Da lat. I especially enjoy the park and pine tree around the palace. The palace itself is interesting and still contains the original furniture. I liked the queen workshop as well as the relative simplicity of the place.

    One of the top 10 "must visit" places in Da Lat, visiting every room in the mansion will help you learn a bit about 20th century history of Da Lat and Vietnam. There is also a nice park with beautiful flowers worth using your camera !
