Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Located in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, The Reunification Palace, formerly known as the Independence Palace, has had a rich & colourful history since its completion. It is also one of the most visited attractions in the city both domestic and international visitors on an annual basis. The basement levels feature the underground blast shelter, which has a war command room and a telecommunications centre, as well as war propaganda materials. The chamber, which has a capacity of more than 500 people and used to be the venue for cabinet launch meetings, and the library, in which there are many books about the generations of presidents, are also important sections in the building. Last but not least, the heliport on the rooftop is also a special feature of this building. Outside the building stand some historical artefacts, including the helicopter and the German Mercedes car used by the former President Nguyen Van Thieu, and the jeep M152A2 used by the Revolutionary Forces to take President Duong Van Minh to the studio where he surrendered to the Vietnamese government on April 30th 1975.
