    Town Hall

    Saigon's Town Hall (1901) could be perfectly situated in any provincial french town. It is called now "Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee".
    Not open to the public, you can only see it from the outside, by day, or (better, as is illuminated) by night.

    One of Saigon's more ornate facades that dates back to the French colonial era. The park in front has a statue of Ho Chi Minh reading a book to a child sitting in his lap. Off to the left is the Rex Hotel. To the right is the Opera House. This building, however, is dwarfed by the HSBC building in the background.

    I was here to see Uncle Ho's statue but then stumble upon the city hall. Nice and a well kept buliding was it was not open to public. Ok, enough said, Uncle Ho's statue is cool isn't it?

    This City Hall building simply shows the influence of the French architecture in Vietnam.
    It is located near the Rex Hotel.

    The same building, taken in the day. It looks totally different during the night (see my previous tip), when it gets all lit up. Lovely!

    Saigon's city hall was constructed between 1902 and 1908, a fantastic ornate example of colonial architecture. Unfortunately, it's not open to the public.

    City Hall was built in the early of 1900's.
    Few French colonial buildings in Ho Chi Minh City are as well preserved as the City Hall..

    The 'sights' in Saigon, as far as specific buildings, will not take more than a few days to see. This is the old Hotel de Ville, built in French colonial days.
