This church is so beautiful and it’s a must place to visit in HCMC. I were very excited to take a look inside. There was a church staff that allowed us to go in the inner part of the church. At the left side were statues of Jesus. There are lots of wedding pictorials done outside the church. It has... More

Its not quite as big as the Paris one but is obviously based on the same architecture and style, both outside and in.Some beautiful stained glass windows. Worth a look and it's just across the road from the old Saigon Post Office.

Maybe coming from Europe (UK) i see many of these so not really much of an attraction for me - but if you like Cathedrals go, otherwise dont worry, you wont miss too much...kind of like the post office on the other side of the street - its just a post office.

Awesome spot to get some great pictures-even the wedding photographers choose this spot for their backgrounds. There are usually quite a few peddlers in this area, so be forewarned about that possibility. Still, visiting this site is well worth it.

This is beside a very busy road (most roads in Ho Chi Minh city!). You have to time your visit if you want to enter the cathedral. Suggest you add to the list of sights to visit when in central areas.

This building is so beautiful and its a must place to visit in HCMC for a good photos session. Its nearby to Diamond Plaza and Old Post Office. Its just 15 - 20 min walking distance from Ben Thant market but u need a map for reference. It would be easier because all the junction will have name of the... More

A visit on the city tour. The church and there is a garden area across the road. Nice architecture. You can get a nice shot from across the road.
