It was a beautiful church, although it's currently being restored and won't be open until 2020 - so you can't go inside or up close. Although it's great to see that it's been cared for. Nice photo ops.

This Cathedral is located in the heart of Saigon( Hochi Min City) and also a one of the landmark of the city. It's built by French over hundred years ago so that visitor can see the architecture of French while you're in Asia.
