Tourists are now able to navigate the Reunification Palace in Ho Chi Minh City on their own thanks to a new set of exhibits printed in English, French and Vietnamese.
Tran Thi Ngoc Diep, director of the palace, told Thanh Nien that the new tour was designed with the help of French graphic designers and curators who have designed signage for the Louvre Museum, the Eiffel Tower, and the cable-stayed bridge Millau Viaduct.
She said the project, which was funded by the French government, marked the 40th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic relationship.
One of the city’s main attractions, the palace welcomed more than 1.1 million visitors last year, and is expected to record over 1.2 million this year.
In the past, the palace’s management board provided a tour guide for every group of 50-100 visitors, meaning that the latter had to wait until there were enough people before being escorted through the palace's more than 30 rooms.
