The Independent Palace

The Independence Palace (also called the Reunification Palace) was built from 1868 and completed in 1871 by the French after they had conquered the six provinces in the South of Vietnam (Cocochine). The Palace had been meant to be the Residence of the Governor of South Vietnam and it was called Norodom Palace (after the King of Cambodia).

In February 1962, there was a coup d'etat in the Republic of South Vietnam and the Independence Palace was bombed and partially destroyed. The reconstruction of the Independence Palace was completed in 1966 and it was used as the Residence of the President and the seat of the government of South Vietnam till 1975.

On 30April1975, the two tanks of the People's Army of Vietnam (of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam – North Vietnam) crushed down the walls of the Independence Palace marking the fall of Saigon and the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam); the two pieces of Vietnam were re-unified.

A wonderful contruction - heart of HoChiMinh city

War Remnants Museum HoChiMinh city

The War Remnants Museum is a war museum at 28 Vo Van Tan, in District 3, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. It primarily contains exhibits relating to the American War (known in the USA as the Vietnam War) also known as the second Indochina War, but also includes many exhibits relating to the first Indochina War involving the French colonialists.

A place you can see through the painful history of war in this small country. Many people come over here to see to feel the history, the pain and then they will be more and more respect the peace they have now...

The building was a combination of western and eastern architecture and has two dragons "dragons flanking the moon" so often referred to as "The Dragon", and the port is also called Nha Rong Wharf. The place in 1911 the Young Man 'Nguyen Tat Thanh' left to find the way to free this small colony - Viet Nam and later became the great leader of Vietnam are still shining along with the nation. And his name being the name of this City - HoChiMinh.

    After a few minutes meeting and chatting with Saja, you will be captivated by Saja's gentle charm and friendliness. Moreover, as the tour progresses, you will be surprised and come to appreciate the wise head on Saja's young shoulders with the depth of her knowledge of the history and culture of Vietnam and the great variety of events she has experienced in her short yet dramatic life(another story)! She also has a great sense of humour! You will be delighted to know that Saja will be very open, very flexible to meet your preferences for your own unique Historical Tour before you rendezvous, and even afterwards! I have no doubts that you will be glad that you met such a jewel on that wonderful day in Saigon!

    Though I had to cancel this triip due to other commitments, Sa was great through the planning process and provided me with a full refund upon cancellation. Hope to be back to HCMC soon and will book a triip with Sa again, because it is focused on the Vietnam War, the subject if my interest. Thank you, Sa!
