Within walking distance are the Central Post Office and the mini Notre Dame Cathedral which gives you a sense of the city’s unique history.The Cathedral was built in the neoclassical architectural style and designed and constructed by the company of the famous architect Gustave Eiffel. The park near Notre Dame is just the place to experience Vietnam’s social life.
Going around the city is pretty accessible by foot, just be careful when crossing the street as there's a lot - and I mean A LOT - of motorbikes, scooters and bicycles coming from all directions. We walked along Pham Ngu Lao Street, the famous backpacker's area in Ho Chi Minh. Other places we got to visit are the Notre Dame Cathedral, an ancient cathedral standing in a very picturesque corner in downtown Saigon; the very busy Ben Thanh Market; the Ho Chi Minh city hall that boasts magnificent architecture; and a night bazaar lined with food and shopping stalls.
Walking further led us to some of Saigon's landmarks like the Notre Dame Cathedral, an ancient cathedral standing in a very picturesque corner of the downtown city; the very busy yet thriving Ben Thanh Market; the Ho Chi Minh city hall that boasts magnificent architecture; and a night bazaar lined with food and shopping stalls. We had a couple of stopovers to eat: the first one had us looking for a place that serves authentic and delicious pho, while the next one saw us sitting on mono block chairs while waiting for a plate of steak and fries, and a glass of Vietnamese coffee. It was good.
We also visit one of the oldest Catholic Church in Asia – it’s the Notre Dame Cathedral. It was very old! like 2,000+ years old even inside you can see how an old Catholic Church looks like.By the way, most of the people their have their own motor bikes,so it’s motorbikes all over the city!!!We headed to the famous Saigon Old Post Office. Nothing special, it’s just the architecture is so European and if you are in Asia who never been to Paris and Italy.
2. Gaze at the marvellous architectures of the Notre Dame Cathedral and Central Post Office. Built by Gustave Eiffel of the Eiffel tower fame, Saigon’s Central Post Office is one of the most acclaimed buildings of the country. Once you enter you are greeted by groups of other tourist praising the Gothic style architecture, French colonial maps and a portrait of Ho Chi Minh. Right across the post office stands the Notre Dame Cathedral basking the beauty of Romanesque architecture, apart from the usual tourist buses I was lucky enough to spot a number of newlyweds having a photo shoot outside the Cathedral.
