“French architecture”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

As the name implies, the Notre Dame Cathedral, like the main post office nearby, is a symbol of the French occupation of Vietnam. Good place for a photo, but if you'd like to look around inside you should inquire when it will be open because it's often closed between services. Your hotel reception should know the timetable.

“Nice church”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went to this church after visiting the Central Post Office. The church was nice and had free admission. I wasn't too blown away by the church.

“Another beautiful piece of french architecture”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

A smaller version of the Notre Dame in Paris. Make sure you go when there is no prayer session is going on as the church is closed during prayer times.

“Good place for photos.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The structuring is really good, since it's like a little Paris in Vietnam. You can take a lot of breath-taking photos in this location.
