People's Committee Building, Ho Chi Minh City

3.8
#5 of 24 in Historic Sites in 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.

    France colonial era building will look very beautiful is. Statue of Ho Chi Minh City and standing in front of the building, very wide path straight through I have will. Around the middle of the downtown of Ho Chi Minh City, so make sure stop is the building you want to try. I think it is deprived of eyes to the beauty of the sculptures.

    It was really good. There's a walking street in front of the building. It's very happenning at night time.  more »
