One of the more interesting things I’ve seen in Ho Chi Minh is the Independence Palace, the former home of South Vietnam’s president, right up until it was taken by North Vietnamese forces in 1975.
You can basically just wander around the enormous building, where everything has been left the way it was in the ’70s.
It’s a fascinating piece of history. There’s an old movie theatre.
Including the projection room.
Plenty of offices.
People lived here.
It’s a bit eerie, and absolutely worth spending some time wandering around.
