People's Committee Building, Ho Chi Minh City

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.

  • Why bother going?? It's a building you can't even go into. Can't believe it's a must see on the list of things to see in Ho Chi Minh City.  more »
  • In the daytime and in the evening I have come, the person thinks the evening is more beautiful, because has the light to accompany lined! In addition, I think the best place to shoot is on the opposite side of the horse, with a telescope that will shoot it from head to tail.
