  • Although this is a nice place, it doesn't compare to the summer Palace which is also in Dalat. It's got some nice interior design and pieces from the age. The gardens are ok. But it's ok. Can check it...  more »
  • You will have a picture history of Dalat. Very suitable for you wedding shooting. Luckily when I went to this Place on a beautiful sunny day.

  • A quaint little modern phase place. Fresh air is what I like the most. Will often guide friends visiting Dalat more to enjoy.

  • experience the dark side of the noble life, there are 3 palace in dalat, which is about 20 minutes walk. and there is no beach, it more likes a jail of jungle and mountain. take a look at the geography.
  • Very interesting to take a step into the past of the late emperor's life. There are plenty descriptions of the rooms in the palace and the life of Bao Dai and his family. Sadly the place is somewhat poorly maintained with the walls and rooms looking dirty, almost as if you are walking into a dystopian world. There are some shops around the palace and a public restroom.
  • Neglected and worn out... just wait in time to rott... 20k admission is OK considering its a historicall tourism spots, however, the goverment should improve the quality of the place.. or at least manage it more professionally...
  • The history of the last king of Vietnam and the valor of the Queen... Well told by Vivy private tour. Also showcase the technology and styling of home designs which is well used till today
  • Very interesd place that you can see the king family,'s house from inside. Old time furniture but the house is clean and pritty. You can see lot of pictures, pots, mugs and privet tools. Tha garden also nice but i can not understand why nesseccery lot of shops at this place.
