The cathedral is a beautiful building. I was unable to go inside and they're currently doing construction yo the outside. It was a significant amount of history. If you visit the post office it's directly across the street.

It's not the best place to visit, but it is worth it if you're very into the history of Vietnam 🇻🇳

We went there twice but couldn’t get in. Plenty of activity outside with photographers and models. Lovely at night time. Right next to the Post Office.

Even thou they highly advertise, not until you reach there you know it is under constructions. We were there in Dec 2018. The entire church is scaffolding and trap covered . Hope they would finish it soon.

We were on a tour and they stopped and talked about the Note Dame Cathedral, as we were standing out side. It was under construction on the outside and gated off. It is a beautiful structure. It is across the street from the Central Post...More

This tourist attraction spot feels like a tourist trap to me. There is nothing to see the entire place was under construction and there are so many stalls / people trying to sell you souvenirs . The place is crowded and a bit crazy. Skip...More
