People's Committee Building, Ho Chi Minh City

(260+ reviews on the web)
Government Building
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.
