President ho Chi Minh Statue, Ho Chi Minh City
(3.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Pay tribute to the Vietnamese leader who fended off US invasion and put the divided country back together at President ho Chi Minh Statue, a very popular place for photos. Standing 7.2 m (ft) tall on a square in front of the French colonial style building, the statue shows the leader greeting visitors with his right arm gently raised. Inaugurated in 2015 to mark the former leader’s 125th anniversary, which replaced a former statue of him standing with a girl, this 4.5 m (14.7 ft) tall bronze statue stands on a 2.7 m (8.8 ft) tall black stone platform making a prominent landmark set in a well-maintained public garden.

  • the beauty and interesting activities that happen here at nights is simply delightful.. i felt very comfortable and relaxed and the prospect views it has of all the sky scrappers is simply amazing 
  • Look back at history, statue of Ho Chi Minh City people's Committee building a classic back to look at eye level with the statue of Ho Chi Minh city boulevards and tall buildings is feel the present and the future. And is one of the points of interest of the classic shade too no, so more people are going to be hot before, in the early hours of the morning to go good and easy taking pictures. Is in the hottest hours, immediately next to the Rex Hotel rooftop cafeteria (guests even turn it on. Delicious fruit juice) with nice view from above while eating lunch. Planting and in good condition, and Ho Chi Minh City who clearly have been taken care of.

  • the statue is located at the end of a huge Plaza located in full Center of Saigon. It is a place that is modernizing strongly and the building that surrounds this place or nearby are modern. This place is also good interesting day and night to see the illuminations.

  • Worth visiting for the shops around the area. Would suggest going during the day time if you want a good photo with the statue, and night time if you want to enjoy the atmosphere with the locals.
  • Nice place to relax and good to take pictures. They were having some celebration going on when we are there and it was very crowded and fireworks were let go. Nice atmosphere.
  • Better statue than before. Nice green garden surrounding in the middle of the town. Great location to take a vivid wife view of saigon!
  • Nothing particular interesting. One glance you can see the whole square.
  • A lovely square, full of surprises, day and night
