People's Committee Building, Ho Chi Minh City
(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
A prominent landmark and possibly the most photographed structure in the city, People's Committee Building serves as a city hall. Initially built as a hotel at the turn of the 20th century, the building faces a landscaped square with a standing statue of Ho Chi Minh raising his right hand to greet his followers. The building is most impressive at night, when artificial illumination makes it look like a European castle. Sadly, you'll only get to admire the French colonial style exterior, as the interior remains closed for public. Use our Ho Chi Minh City family vacation planner to visit People's Committee Building on your trip to Ho Chi Minh City, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • This is a pretty building to photograph. Very nice at night time too! You cannot go inside but it makes a great back-drop of the statue of Ho Chin Minh. 
  • Beautiful] building in French style, a pity that the building of the people's Committee is closed to visitation.

  • How to review a building that is not accessible to the public? It is nice to take a look at the colonial architecture. It also makes a good photo background and a sort of majestic backdrop for the famous Nguyen Hue Boulevard. However, don't loiter in front of the building or the guards will chase you away.
