This building is absolutely beautiful. The architectural grandeur is enhanced by the majestic statue of Ho Chi Minh situated in the square opposite the building. Perfect photo from whichever angle! It's a shame that this place is not open to the public.

Originally the headquarters of the French Security Bureau when Vietnam was part of French Indochina, this is an interesting building which dominates the end of the street - makes a good bookend for a walk from the Saigon River

An impressive colonial building in the middle of a bustling Asian city. Some good photo opportunities.

Beautiful building at the end of walking street. definitely a nice place to go with your so after dinner to hold hands and watch the people. There is a statue of Ho Chi Minh just out front and across the street.

A very beautiful building which dominates the main area of the city. At night it looks really good and the park in front attracts both tourists and locals. This is the class area of Saigon with all the main designer shops. They are building a metro nearby which will add to the great progress this city is making.

Beautiful building I guess in French style of architecture. In front of it stands the monument of uncle Ho and the beginning of the square leading to the business towers of the city. Very well lighted and full of people at night.

Its a building you can only see from the outside which is kind of a shame. Best viewed after dark as it is perfectly positioned right in the heart of the shopping district in front of the best walking areas in Ho Chi Minh

This is a great night time destination. The street is very busy, shops open, lots of shopping. Buskers on the street. It was a great way to spend the evening.

You have to at least take a look at this beautiful French building and if you can get a meeting check out the inside. The inside is even more stunning than the outside--but you will have to be on official business. If you have a chance--do it!
