“visiting spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

been here straight in 2 days but it's closed :(. unluckily vietnam museum and attraction place close really early T.T
but seeing the cathedral from the park, getting your ice cream and sit in on the bench is the most best view ever.
Mostly, local people will hang out at park opposite the cathedral during night. cool thing to do
It's located opposite the central post office. a must place to visit

“Check when it closes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We arrived just after 4 (after a day of sightseeing) and it had a note saying it closed at 4. Never seen a Church close so early so was a little bit disappointing not being able to go in. That said, if you are walking here it is so out of the blue. It is beautiful and the statue of Mary with the cathedral behind it makes for some beautiful photos.
