The story of the palace

An orphan who led the Hmongs and withstood the French army, Vuong Chinh Duc set out to build a palace worthy of his power.

The palace features elegant teak furniture, luxurious goat milk bath tubs, and pillars chiseled into the shape of poppy buds – a reminder of how he financed his empire. It also doubles as a fortress, with its own armory and guard tower.
