A massive cathedral in the middle of an extremely busy road system, beautiful sustained glass windows and amazing interior. Lots of tourists and watch out for the "Selfie" sticks.

What an amazing church, beautiful architecture and the stained glass everywhere is beautiful art. The 9:30am mass on Sunday's is in English. Just a heads-up, the church is UNBEARABLY hot during mass. They do their best to cool the place down with many fans positioned throughout the church, but every mass I have attended has been completely packed. So with... More

Located in the most attracted point in the centre of the city and surrounded by many antique locations, Notre Dame Cathedral is always the best place for tourist to visit and for the resident to chill after long working week. No more to describe about how charming and beautiful it is, to us (people who live here), the church is... More

The Saigon Notre Dame is a beautiful cathedral in district 1. There is no need to book a tour as it is a small place and most of the taxi drivers know how to get there. If you want to enter the premises check their opening hours before you go, the entry is free, the front section of the cathedral... More

I like to visit churches and cathedrals when I'm travelling because I think they say a lot about the people who worship in them. I didn't expect this cathedral to be so nice. It was close to our hotel and we included it in a tour round the city centre. There was wedding when we first arrived and the bridesmaids,... More

If you're taking a walking city tour, you can find this just in front of the Saigon Central Post Office and less than a kilometer from the Independence Palace. My tour guide explained that all the bricks from the Cathedral came from France which is amazing to say the least. There are alters inside but I guess you can visit... More

Dropped in here as part of the city tour. It's a 'working' church so you can join the services if you want. OK for a visit as part of a tour

A picturesque building worth taking a photo snap or two. We didn't go inside as it was not open to public at the time. Located next to Post Office so you can combine both visits in one go.
