"When I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City at night, I went to play in the city center as soon as I settled down in the hotel. I first saw the night view of Notre Dame Cathedral, and then I saw the whole picture the next day. The Gothic architecture is really beautiful."

"Ho Chi Minh City is a very romantic city, Margaret Duras's "Lover" story is taking place here. The city of Ho Chi Minh City, originally known as Saigon, has been under French colonial rule for more than 70 years since 1859, leaving behind many French-style buildings. The most representative of these are the Red Church and the Century Central Post Office."

"The Ho Chi Minh Museum of Art is a bright yellow building. The museum has three floors and was designed by Vietnamese and French designers. Therefore, the style has both Vietnamese and French characteristics. If you don’t understand the collection of art works, you can also look at the architecture."

Saigon Opera House

""The opera house, a French colonial relic, was designed by the ornate architecture of the Third Republic of France. Its roofs and all the decorations were brought from Paris, and the decorations and furniture were designed by French artists." So there is the original French style. Although the opera house now has a luxurious and magnificent French appearance, it was not until 1998 that it was restored to its former glory after the first World War when the opera house was removed from its exterior decoration, prints and statues for criticism of the French exterior. "It is a place for many arts and crafts performances, including ballet, circus performances, among others, the most popular show in recent years, the most popular local circus performance in Vietnam." It is a very popular performance that is praised by the international media as international. It is a must to go when you punch in your photo."
