Presidential Palace, Hanoi


The Presidential Palace of Vietnam (Vietnamese: Phủ chủ tịch), located in the city of Hanoi, currently is the official residence of the president of Vietnam. Before 1954, it was named the Palace of the Governor-General of Indochina (French: Palais du Gouvernement général de l'Indochine, Vietnamese: Phủ Toàn quyền Đông Dương).

The palace was built between 1900 and 1906 to house the French governor-general of Indochina and was constructed by Auguste Henri Vildieu, the official French architect for French Indochina. Like most French colonial architecture, the palace is pointedly European. The only visual cues that it is located in Vietnam at all are mango trees growing on the grounds.
