One never knows the impact of a physical space until you visit there. While this is not necessarily an important part of history, it impacted me in unexpected ways.
The palace was used in the Vietnam War and US notaries when they did visit, met with the South Vietnamese leaders in this palace. There were rooms used to great a variety of ambassadors over the years from various countries. The rooms were relatively sparse with only a few important pieces of art in each room. The bunker below the palace was where most of the intense work was done during the war…although there were rooms throughout the palace with maps and strategic planning signs. In the end, this was the place where the leaders signed the treaty that ended a long and somewhat futile period of history not only for these people but also for the US.
