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.

  • You really should see to it that a route through the city goes past this place both during the day, but especially in the evening, where the building is like incredibly nice up, and where locals and tourists flock to in order to enjoy the open space and the many fountains, where people get incredibly much fun out of the jets of water coming up from the sidewalk.

  • On the front side of the magnificent Avenue "Nguyễn Huệ" this classic building, which is a stark contrast to the modern business or hotel buildings in one is visible from afar. It is very well maintained and one of the most beautiful buildings of the old Saigon.

  • During the walk in Ho Chi Minhstaden, we passed this beautiful building with main street and broad walkway. However, the square's fate and nothing else of interest was to see.

  • 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.
