People's Committee Building, Ho Chi Minh City

(4.1/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • 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.
