Notes on the Geography of Vietnam: Saigon: Photo 18

world pictures Vietnam: Saigon

The presidential palace of South Vietnam or, formally, of the Republic of Vietnam, which existed from 1955 to 1975. Designed by the French-trained and prolific Ngo Viet Thu, it was completed in 1966 for President Ngo Dinh Diem and stands on the side of the residence built in 1868 for the French governor-general of Cochin China. Now called the Reunification Palace, it is a museum preserved largely as it was on April 30th, 1975, when it was stormed by communist forces.
