Presidential Palace

Historic Building in Hanoi

This opulent restored colonial building was constructed in 1906 as the Palace for the Governor General of Indochina. The yellow (a colour of communism) beaux-arts palace is now used for official receptions and isn’t open to the public.

There is a combined entrance gate to the stilt house and Presidential Palace grounds on P Ong Ich Kiem inside the mausoleum complex. When the main mausoleum entrance is closed, enter from Ð Hung Vuong near the palace building.
