This site includes no information at all in English about the history of this place, and my hunch is that almost none is given in Vietnamese, either, given the fact that historical signs regarding classic French architecture in this country are virtually non-existent. So, if...More

Beautiful old french style villa filled with a lot of artefacts. House is surrounded by old canons. Very reasonable admission charge. Well worth the visit. Beautiful views from the front of the house out over the river.

This isn’t just an architecturally beautiful building housing some interesting historical artefacts, it also has a nice peaceful atmosphere. The palace is surrounded by a large area of well kept greenery.

One of the more interesting things to do in Vung Tau... the architecture and the history are really interesting. It's so cheap to visit - I wish they would charge a little more and spend the proceeds on maintenance. The views, and the gardens, and...More
