The elegant colonial structure of Ho Chi Minh City Hall overlooking the well laid Nguyen Hue Boulevard is Saigon’s most impressive landmark. Although the interior is not open to public, the awesome facade makes for great photo opportunities in day as well as at night with its spectacular enhanced lighting. The building was completed in 1908 and inaugurated on the... More

Probably the first thing that caught my eyes in awe while walking to Nguyen Hue street was this magnificent building. Not only that the architecture is mesmerizing, but the attraction in its surrounding area makes the building seems to be more of a sacredly interesting spot to even just simply pass by.

This building cannot be visited by tourists, but acts as an excellent background to Ho Chi Minh statue in the adjacent square. A nice walk will eventually lead you here.

Yes it is on the way of all the touristic places of Saigon. you will see it no matter what. You do not have to plan anything to be there. Walking in District 1 will lead you there anyways.

This is a pretty building to photograph. Very nice at night time too! You cannot go inside but it makes a great back-drop of the statue of Ho Chin Minh.

This building sits proudly at the top of the Main Street in the centre of HCMC. Situated behind Ho Chi Minh statue it is a great photo opportunity on a sunny day Very colonial looking and striking. Looks less attractive when you can see inside through one of the entrances. Do not believe you can just walk inside to look... More

In my opinion the most beautiful (large) building in the city. Make sure you go on a clear day and get lots of photos taken from Nguyen Hue Street.
