Independence Palace reveals secrets of toppled Saigon regime

Tanks slammed through the gates of the Independence Palace at around noon on April 30, 1975, marking the fall of Saigon. Now for the first time, some of the palace's hidden treasures have been opened to members of the public.

From April 28 onwards, visitors can take a look at Nguyen Van Thieu’s bedroom and Nguyen Cao Ky’s office, respectively president and vice president of the former Saigon regime.

Nguyen Cao Ky's office. According to authorities, the two rooms were restored to 1970s’ style and partly express the owners' characters based on the remaining objects and old photos.

Born in northern Vietnam in 1930 and trained at aviation schools in both France and the U.S., Ky was a Major General Air Force commander and Prime Minister under the former Saigon regime. After 1975, he lived abroad and died in 2011 in Malaysia.

Dang Tuyet Mai was a flight attendant from Hanoi. 14 years younger than Ky, she married him in November 1964.

Nguyen Van Thieu's bedroom, president of the former Saigon regime from 1967 to 1975, is also open to the public, and features a classic art-deco theme.
