The stunning, partially ruined Dien Tho Residence (1804) once comprised the apartments and audience hall of the Queen Mothers of the Nguyen dynasty. The audience hall houses an exhibition of photos illustrating its former use, and there is a display of embroidered royal garments.

Just outside is an enchanting pleasure pavilion , a carved wooden building set above a lily pond. This has now been transformed into a delightful little cafe.
