You have to at least take a look at this beautiful French building and if you can get a meeting check out the inside. The inside is even more stunning than the outside--but you will have to be on official business. If you have a chance--do it!

The People's Committee Building is a beautiful looking building but you can't go in. Just enjoy its graceful lines and the new statue of Ho out the front. You can also cool down in the fountain just down the road either intentionally or unintentionally.

Just love the architectural point of view of this building as well as most of the structure around. With the statue situated infront of the building was great.

One cannot visit the People's Committee Building (PCB) - the City Hall under French colonial rule. So we had a look at it from the outside. What makes the site really historic (to me) is the huge statue of Ho Chi Min in front of it. As well as the Rex hotel on the left hand side (facing the PCB)... More

Across the building, there is a statue of Ho Chi Ming on the very wide pedestrian street. When you walk to the end of the street, you meet Saigon River.

This building is beautiful architechture at the head of the walking street. It is photo worthy when you are a little way down near the water feature and fountains. Many people enjoy that area and eveni g time is especially nice.

An attractive building which is a fine back drop to the imposing and dominant statue in front of it of Mo Chi Minh himself. Well worth viewing.

No entry to the City hall but a great spot to take photos of the building itself, of the nice boulevard and of course of the Ho Chi Minh statue.
