Great building in a good area to walk around and enjoy the other sites in the area. Not able to go inside but the outside is beautiful.

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.

This is by far Saigon's most beautiful building, and while it is not open to the public, its beauty shines over the pedestrianized street starting from it towards the river. There are countless photo-ops here, especially when the building is beautifully lit after dark.

This is a very symbolic pic to take of HCMC. A fine looking building from the outside. You cannot go in or hang outside it. Unless you cross the road and take pics from the other side. Looks wonderful at night too!

This is truly a beautiful building that is really overshadowed somewhat by the Ho Chi Minh Statue across the road and the Walking Street that many people come to experience. This building stands proud behind the photo opportunities when you take in the statue of Ho Chi Minh. At night this structure is lit up and is a fantastic feature... More

It is located near the President Ho Chi Minh statue. A very beautiful architectural building. A must visit place when you are in HCM.

This is near high end shops so you can definitely roam around after taking amazing photos of the building.

Walked by this impressive building and found it architecturally interesting. I was informed that this building is a former French hotel. It is not open to the public. Presently it is a municipal office in HCMC.

Superb vista from the road and very photogenic. Unfortunately building seems to be in use and visitors not permitted ( Guards supervise admission)

This building is located at the Western end of Nguyen Hue Street,easy for the shopping malls.Photos can be taken from across the street but don't attempt to walk up the polished marble steps.The doors are open during daylight hours but the guards will stop you entering.Pity I'm sure the interior would represent a step back in time with digital facilities...
