  • Just stop and look at this place to capture that moment in your head before you go and take any photos. 
  • Enjoyed seeing this palace again. Not your average european palace but still worth a short visit. You'll be amazed at the construction of the building. 
  • I don't know why there is a page dedicated to this room because it is located in the imperial city... it will be necessarily part of your visit in the city! Inevitable because the path of the visit... you will not be able to take photos inside... but the fun is especially for the eyes! You will have also a short video giving you some explanations about the city! Good visit! Entry to 150000 dong per person! If you plan on visiting graves, buy the combined ticket at the same time to save some money!
