You cannot bypass the statue of Ho Chi Minh situated in the square. The whole area is kept nice and clean and flowers are usually placed around the statue. The area is surrounded by luxury boutiques and some great restaurants. The "Peoples committee of Ho Chi Minh City" is located behind the statue. This site is mentioned in every tourist guide so you can expect to bump into other tourists here. I found this an interesting place to visit and walk around. Watch out for the vendors and remember to bargain. Do not miss this scenic place when in Saigon.
