  • 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!
  • Historic place, also offer photography service which you can dress up like an emperor. Around the building is the flower garden which is quite nice.
  • My first time to DaLat I came here to see this place.The garden of flowers that lay on the grounds was impressive.To enter here you have to ware these booty like slippers over your shoes.
  • This place is not changed much by time, but it's still great to visit again.
  • At first a bit run down and not very interesting, but once you enter the palace there are many historical rooms to check out. The foreground is beautiful as well. I enjoyed this. If they managed the front so it was a little more welcoming and presentable to guests this would receive a perfect score.
