  • It's a large plaza by the entrance to the citadel so it can't be missed. The history of how it's used is interesting and was told by our tour guide. Good photo from afar but you can't go in so no need...  more »
  • Flag hoisting units is located in front of the cattle gate (South Gate), the main gate of the Royal Palace. Feels like you in front of the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum in Hanoi compared to what the flag is slightly smaller, but just as bar height? Originally, the Nguyen dynasty was abolished, the current Communist regime, so that demonstrations be? In the December sky, fluttered in the cool.
