Beautiful architecture and lit up at night is just stunning. A nice calm place with a lovely fountain nearby and Uncle Ho's statute with manicured garden area. Very clean. Shame you cant go inside. Nice to go when they close the traffic off and you can really enjoy this space. Lots of local families walking around here.

Standing magnificently in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, the People’s Committee Building features the elegant & aesthetic characteristics of French Colonial architecture.... it was designed & constructed under the supervision of Femand Gardes during the period from 1889 to 1909... The facade of this building is a perfect confluence of many different kinds of designs, the most well-known of which is the Marianne relief lying in the middle of the facade, which reflect the architecture of the French Third Republic

This old French colonial city hall was modelled on the Hotel de Ville in Paris and built between 1902 and 1908.

It is now the seat of the People's Committee Building and stands as a reminder of French colonial rule of French Indochina.

You can't go in but it is well worth admiring it from the statue of Ho Chi Minh himself

Nearby is the Saigon Opera House

This is more commonly known as the Ho Chi Minh City Hall. The hall was built during the French occupation between 1902–1908 by architect Paul Gardès and following the French colonial architectural style, which is quite similar to the british.

If you are in district 1, you will not miss this building as it is located right in the city center with many key attractions nearby such as the Opera theater, Cafe apartment and the busiest walking street, Nguyen Hue.

At night, the building is beautifully lighted and looks grand and majestic and in the day time, it looks so different and more formal. I prefer the night view!

It is a government official building and so it's not opened to the public and it does serves as a good photo-stop from opposite the main entrance. It's lovely but the traffic is always heavy and quite difficult to get a good shot without the motorbikes in particular!!!

Pity you can't go inside! The building architecture and colour are stunning, especially in the sunlight. Take a walk around. Very well kept and clean. Worth a stop. You need maybe 5 to 10 minutes. Centrally located so you are likely to pass it anyway.

This colossal European architecture is a reminder of Saigon's colonial legacy. Although renamed to Ho Chi Minh City after its fall to the communists in 1975, the former city hall still serves as government building. Unfortunately it is not open to public.

Wow what a stunning building! We only saw it during the day but it was specular, and all around and in the square opposite were perfectly manicured trees and plants adding to its splendour appearance

The building looks fantastic in the evening. Many people in the square. Good to take photos. The walking street in front of the committee building is worth walking and exploring. Sometimes there are street performers.

Never been inside the Complex but have seen this building in war and peace. Peace is better. I mentioned that this building was behind the statue of Ho Chi Minh and the Rex Hotel. It is still impressive day or night.
