Premier architecture in Ho Chi Minh City

  • Saigon Central Pos...

    One of HCMC's most popular attractions, Saigon Central Post Office is the largest post office in Vietnam.

An enormous picture of Ho Chi Minh overlooks proceedings. Even if you don't have a bundle of postcards to send ...

    One of Ho Chi Minh City's most prominent landmarks, the Saigon Opera House was custom built in 1897 by French architect Eugene Ferret.

Tickets are available on location in District 1, Saigon.   Great photo ...

  • Martyrs' Cemetery

    Halfway between HCMC and Bien Hoa is the Martyrs' Cemetery, dedicated to the memory of those who sacrificed themselves for national liberation in the American War.

    In the centre of HCMC, at the end of Nguyen Hue, sits the magnificent office of the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee.

    Saigon's Reunification Palace was designed by Ngo Viet Thu for South Vietnam's former President, Ngo Dinh Diem, during the American War. The official handover of power took place here on April 30, 1975 and the place became a monument to that fateful date. The highlight is the basement that looks like a wartime movie set. Near Reunification Palace is 30-4 ...

    With its imposing exterior, replete with wooden shutters and balconies, the Archbishop's Palace is said to be the oldest house in Ho Chi Minh City.
