Normally I don't visit places such as these; Pagodas, Temples, etc. I'm more of an outdoor adventurer such as going to beaches, waterfalls, or hike in the mountains. But it's good to sometimes visit places like these to learn a little about history. I enjoyed...More

Essentially a summer residence, described as a palace, providing interesting information about the King and his family.

We took a taxi from the city center, paid a reasonable entrance fee and entered a huge compound covered by trees. After passing around few smaller villas you arrive to the main building at the end of the driveway. In the palace, you can see...More

We learned a lot of history touring the palace and even paid a fee to dress up in their costumes for pictures as Emperor and Empress of Vietnam! Palace is well kept and the grounds well tendered. We enjoyed this place.

There is some basic history of the genealogy along a self-guided tour of the Palace. The grounds are beautiful, as is much of Da Lat.

This is the only palace open to the public and well worth examining the life of the past residents. Palace 2 is visible from the road, part of the grounds are a private hotel, and Palace 3 which is in decay, is off the beaten...More

If you only have time for one palace, visit this one. (Palace III is more utilitarian.) Well maintained both inside and out. Great photo opportunities start at the front gate and continue through the grounds.

It was a new attraction and not many people visited when I went there which was good to me compared to the crazy house. The whether is cool and it feels so cozy while walking. The ticket sells for 30000 dong and it's worthwhile.
