So stunning. A little bit of history, and very beautiful. They were busy with renovations and we couldn't go in. But the outside is amazing. Don't miss this when in Saigon.

Centrally located with surrounded by hectic city pace, yet felt the solitude and calm when in the cathedral. English service on Sundays is at 9.30am has many nationalities. Currently exterior is under renovation and some parts may not look good for pictures.

Lovely place to visit but make sure to wear modest clothing in order to be allowed in. The outside is beautiful, definately worth a few photographs! The architecture is great.

Pretty building, and obviously quite historically significant, but you cannot go inside so you only really end up spending a couple of minutes outside taking photos. There is also loads of construction happening so there is currently scaffolding around the side of the building. Still...More
