This is where I normally go to hear mass on Sundays. English masses are at 9.30 am. It is now being renovated and it is good that only mass goers are allowed inside for the service.

We saw this building while we were on our way to the Post Office. Very beautiful and worth looking at if you're passing.

It's under construction but still a sight to see in Saigon. It is right in front of the Post Office and is a prime tourist spot. Well secured place as well.

It was good here, but nothing that discussion. Probably more interesting in a guided tour where they tell you about it because our guide didn't say much and it was just a big French building
