Tajmasago Palace – Travel Thursday


Tajmasago Palace Restaurant, Phu My Hung, D7, HCMC

I attended a wedding dinner in HCMC last weekend.  The dinner was held at the Tajmasago Palace Restaurant in Phu My Hung, District 7.

It is a grand restaurant with various pools and fountains in the courtyard.  It also houses a hotel for guests who wish to spend the night.

I was told that this restaurant was built by the owner of Khai Silk.

Another view of the Tam Coc River in Ninh Binh Province in northern Vietnam.
Notice the tombstones along the river bank? The Chinese inscriptions on them implies that these are hundreds of years old, probably erected during or even before the early French colonialisation.
