  • It's a must visit if you're around the area, but won't consider travelling just for this. The architecture is quite unique and beautiful since there isn't many like this in this area. This was built by the local drug dealer/warlord in 1921 and its been maintained quite well. The only let down was there's numerous rooms kept open but they were mostly empty. Would have been good to have some exhibits in them. The ticket costs 20K.
  • Nice background story about H’mong king of Northwest in Vietnam. Palace itself seems ruin by locals a lot. Need more maintain to deserve with ticket we pay for!
