Reunification Palace

The Reunification Palace was the home and headquarters of the President of the Republic of Vietnam, the South Vietnamese puppet state propped up by the US during the Vietnam War. Since it was captured by the Communists in 1975 it has been preserved more or less in the way the found it, so it's pretty much a monument to 1960s kitsch.

Naturally I loved it. The furniture was totally fabulous, but the bomb shelter in the basement was really interesting too.


  1. I'm reading from my phone so will comment later. Looks fab so far, esp big fibreglass items in airport. Xx

  2. The photo of scared Jim made my day.
