At the end of the day this church was visited because we were on a tour and we didn't linger for long. It's across the road from the post office. It's just something to see if you have the time,

Well if you have seen the original this is disappointing. the best thing about the square is the post office to one side. This building is a lot more interesting

Lots of people around. Some performances to see, does not really compare to other tourist traps but not bad for a look and see.

This square is very busy! To cross the street, you are taking your life into your hands with the amount of scooters speeding by. The cathedral is beautiful and there are bright flowers in the square. The Post Office, which is a historical building is adjacent to the cathedral.

Nice square with both the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral and the elegant General Post Office. Locals love hanging out at this square, both daytime and nighttime. We visited it as part of our mega city walk starting from the Sunland Hotel and it was our turnaround point. Don't forget to get a photo of the cathedral from the back too!

This is a nice cathedral to visit if you're in town. I don't see it as a must, but if you are here and like to see different architecture and so forth it's great. When you'r walking around Ho Chi Minh you could easily stop by and have a look.

Lovely square with elegant buildings and a superb views of the Cathedral Facade. Great photo op and a nice place to explore The nearby historic post office building is worth popping into as well.

A wonderful experience as my husband and I have been to Notre Dame in Paris many years ago. There was so much activity with a bride & groom having their photos taken. As I'm a wedding celebrant, this was extra special for me!

It looks nice during the day and night (with the lights) Apparently, this church in no longer in use so its mainly for tourist attraction.
