“A copy of the grand dame of Paris”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a smaller version of the real thing and it is not as grand as the real one. It is rather simple inside and if you want to worship, you are free to enter and sit in the pew. Donations are welcome for the upkeeping of the place. Crossing the road to get to the cathedral can be a challenge, just be brave and follow the advice on crossing the road of HCMC.

Cathedral is very nice, looks exactly like many of the cathedrals you would see in Paris! Except this has some unique Vietnamese touches

“big”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is not quite the type of church you would think that you would find in a place like ho chi minh. We just walked around it but it was beautiful

“Beautifully decorated”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The Cathedral inside is beautifully decorated and has survived the communist ravages. A little bit of medieval Europe in the midst of asia.

“Cathedrals, what more”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

can you say. This cathedral is an impressive structure. Even nicer when there is a service, so you can listen to the music.
