(SEAArch) Hidden royal tunnel found in Vietnam

The staff of the Lam Dong Provincial Museum has recently discovered a hidden tunnel in a Da Lat villa originally owned by queen Nam Phuong, wife of Bao Dai, the Nguyen Dynasty’s last King of Vietnam. Doan Thi Ngo, deputy head of the museum, said it was found in the basement of the building behind a locked door when the staff was cleaning the villa for an upcoming photo exhibition. She added that there is no material known to document the existence of this tunnel.
