The Cathedral is impressive from the outside. They do not open the whole day long, so I could not see its internal architecture because it was closed. It is ok to go around and visit some other landmarks like the Post Office where you can...More

This square is shared by two of the iconic buildings of Ho Chi Minh City: the cathedral and the post office . A must visit but not for the square in itself but for its surroundings.

Just a warning really - it is currently closed for renovations as at November 2018 so you cannot go in, however, still a good chance to take some photos of this lovely building from outside.

O.k. from outside, many of similar in Europe and being renovated so you can't get in. But it's right next to the Post Office so if you there, will see it anyway.

I visited the cathedral and its grounds when I was here in 2015; found it to be stunningly beautiful. Unfortunately, this time around, the building is under renovation.

Almost impossible to see/stay for than a few minutes. We might have had bad luck, as several tourist busses were there at the time. There were also quite a few 'scam' operators there. We took our photo and left

A lovely old church. Would have loved to have entered but being on tour we were not provide the opportunity although I was told it was closed. Opposite the Post Office so two in one tourist stops

The facade was in tact for pictures, but closed for constructions. The Central Post Office is to the right of the Cathedral. Watch out for motorcycles when crossing the streets.
