The view at night is stunning and the nearby area is full of people. It is located right in the middle of the city where most of the main attraction is.

Part of package tour purchased while on a cruise, which took us from the port to Ho Chi Minh City. Well worth seeing this impressive catherdral designed from the initial Notre Dame Catherdral in Paris.

A fine piece of Architecture in the centre of Saigon, dating back to the French Colonial times. Worth a visit if you have time.

This cathedral is very nice as background for pictures. We never got the chance to see the inside. But the brick type walls from the outside is quite beautiful. One of Saigon's tourist that is good for a quick view and photo ops. Across the street is the famous Post Office of Saigon.

This cathedral is nice to look at from the outside. The inside isn't very spectacular, but the windows are very beautiful. Good for a quick look at.

Quite an eye catching church from the outside - its located on an island which is surrounded by busy roads. Was just as eye catching inside as well - very beautifully decorated church.
