Lovely church

I love the church but not the street eateries there under Maria statue at night. Unfortunately, I have not been inside, will try next time.

Well, this is just another church like any other around the globe. If you have to the time go to visit but do not change your plans just to visit it.

When in HCMC, I regularly go to the Sunday 9.30 English language Mass. it is wonderful to worship in a nearly full cathedral, and they cater for the international congregation. The PA system is not the best, but the worship is. The Cathedral does need some work, and they are busy fundraising to make this happen.

You can't get into the church, so you can only take pictures from outside and admire the facade. Nevertheless it's still a pretty church.

It was definitely an eye-catching building. I accidentally stumbled upon it while on the way to check out the Central Post Office. There didn't seem to be anything interactive about it though, it's merely good for some photo-taking.

The Saigon Notre Dame is a beautiful.aold Cathedral located in Central Saigon. It is beside the Central Post Office. It is open at certain hours of the day so be sure to ask around if you want to go inside.

It was a pretty church - very stylish. It was nice seeing it, and it didn't take long to get in, and around.

It was amazing to see again and just like the cathedral in Paris. This is a busy area in the city and there were lots of people around. We were unable to go inside as the prayer service had commenced. A must see in the city.

Not a fancy cathedral but nice. Selected opening hours and restricted area to visit. Nice to see the strong faith of many
