  • The palace is not that old. It was built in the 1930's and all of the furniture was from France. The grounds were beautiful, but it would not make a day of it.  more »
  • What is the atmosphere? What is Splendor? Come here to know. Like building design friends, please come on a tour, here is the language guide, please slow down your feet, good taste of the scenery of the characteristics, but also indulge yourself in the traces of history

  • Interesting summer house, not sure if call it a palace. Gardens were a bit overgrown but still quite pretty. Entrance fee was cheap.
  • Very interesting to see how the former king of Vietnam summered. It's a beautiful location with excellent views. Well worth visiting if you have the time.
  • 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.
  • 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
