President ho Chi Minh Statue, Ho Chi Minh City
(3.9/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • 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
