Quite small and antique. I would feel bored when coming to this palace if my friend who went along with me weren't an architect. He explained how the houses built in the antique style mean. Can't comprehend but it's quite interesting. Find a local expert if you want to visit this place.

This place is basically the Vietnamese painter's Thanh Chuong's private collection of arts and artifacts. The setting is representative of what an old Hanoi village was like. As you go through this "palace", you would see tons and tons of what Thanh Chuong collected through the years. There is also a garden setting with a resting pavilion in the middle... More

This place is not well known and in fact our driver who said he had been before, got lost on the way and we took a cattle track type rough road in. Fortunately we came out on the bitumen, as we were en route to the airport and a flight to catch. (12 km from airport) It is a private... More

Just outside Hanoi this palace is one of the hidden secrets of Vietnam, it shows off the culture and art of Thanh Chuong in a unique way. Getting there is not easy, you will need a GPS or similar. Once there the price of admission in very small but the palace itself is fantastic. One of the best outing I... More

We were really impressed with this private art gallery - lovely gardens, great collection of statues, pottery and paintings and access to nearly all areas. The entry fee (130,000 VND) is quite pricey compared to most attractions in Hanoi, and it is a fair way out of town but good to do for something different and to enjoy the serenity.... More

An old interesting palace in vietnamese style. walk around is also a considerable distance for the elderly. the preservation of the nature is good. But not much things to see in the complex. It can be a good experience to visit if you like archeological tour

My friends who live in Hanoi took me here yesterday. I didn't know what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. It is an artists private collection but set into the landscape trying to preserve viet heritage and history. The place is just beautiful and so serene. There is a tribute room to the artists father who was a famous... More

It took my friend and I an 1 1/2hr journey by bus to see Thanh Chuong's Viet Palace - and it was worth it. I came across many locals when I returned to the city and they hadn't heard about Viet Palace. With that being said, it made sense why there weren't many tourists when I visited. It made it... More

A tasteful wonderland of Vietnamese culture, including the art of Thanh Chuong, whose idea it was to create the sprawling compound. Mostly outdoors, some angled walkways, lots of steps, but also there are areas to explore on one level. There's a restaurant/cafe for refreshment. You could spend a couple of hours here, easy, walking around, taking it all in. The... More
