It is unfortunately a bit disappointing for who knows the original one in Paris, but it is still worth a visit ;)

Went here and was able to visit the inside as well. They close by 4pm for the public. Its a large but simple cathedral in comparison to its European contemporaries. Was not enamoured. It is right across the road from the post office.

Beautiful building fronted by a square where you will see a statue of the Virgin Mary. The inside of the Cathedral is not ornate. Mass in English is on Sundays @ 09:30. Other Mass times in Vietnamese are as per the attached photo.

Worth a visit because other things are near by including the post office and war remnants museum. The square itself is busy with some interesting things going on.

We were not allowed to enter the building because we wore tank tops. Make sure to cover your shoulders when going. It's truly beautiful though.

A fantastic place to take photo. You can also pray inside the Church. It is best to be visited during night time.
