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

Great fun and worth checking in with those that used to have it all. The palace is small but informative and there is a bit more to see and do. Loved dressing up as a King....

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

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.

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.
