This place was built between 1805 and 1812 under King Gia Long and is over 2 centuries old. It resembles an old stone fortress and has steps leading to the top where one can get a good view of the city. There are old cannon sitting at the base of the place at grand level.

This tower has nothing special but you have to know that it's there that the first Vietnamese flag was set after the independance. It's very near of Ho Chi Minh memorial

Visited the museum and had a walk up onto the platforms of the tower. Great stone structure and was nice to hear that it's over 200 years old and is still how it was back then. The stairs are steep for those wanting to walk...More

The flag tower is just close to the War museum, so you cannot miss it. Have a walk around, climb up the terraces and enjoy the view (but you cannot go up the very top)
