Important notice to travelers, that the cathedral interior is closed from 12pm - 3pm, and will then be closed from 5pm onwards, so do arrange your... More

It is within walking distance from Diamond Plaza and you will barely spend 30 minutes there. I could only see the interior from the entrance of the church but it was awesome.

A Catholic church in the middle of a busy city. Worth a visit if you want to pray. Or if part of a tour. I've seen more impressive churches elsewhere.

Inspiring French architecture. Exterior is impressive but the interior is in need of some work. The cathedral is open everyday although the pew area is open only to worshippers. Just let the lady who's in charge know if you want to go in and she'll let you in. Worth a visit.

Not a lot to see inside, but since this is in the centre of town it is worth a short visit. Right across the road from the post office so you can visit both in under an hour.

This is well worth the visit - the architecture is gorgeous and the French influence is so pronounced. It is peaceful place to visit in central HCMC, for a little less of the craziness of the streets outside.

The exterior is beautiful as the interior. We're lucky enough to see some locals singing for a mass sort of thing. Nice place to visit when in the area. If you are visiting be sure to poke you head into the post office and reunification palace while there.

We were so lucky to see the Cathedral. I really wasn't anticipating seeing such a beautiful church in Vietnam. Temples sure but Catholic churches not so much.
