Under construction as of May 2018 so you cannot go in and the outside is partially covered. If you are from Europe or the United States, you probably will have seen many more impressive churches. As another reviewer said, churches like these are a dime...More

This place is very pretty. Unfortunately at the moment Notre Dame is closed for renovations. You can still admire it from far.

This is just a decent church. Dime a dozen in Europe or America, and only a tourist site because it's a French colonial building.

Intresting French building with name reminding of Paris. Did not go inside. Nice outside areas. Too hot in July. Use Umbrella.

There is NOTHING special about the SQUARE in front of Notre Dame and in front of the Saigon Post Office. Both the cathedral and the post office are listed separately, so I'm really not sure why this square even deserves mention.....

Unfortunately we couldn’t go too near as it is under renovation but it looks like a stunning building. If we go back to this city we will make an effort to go and see it in all its glory

The omnipresence of the cathedral surrounding the parks and gardens at the prominent location in Ho Chi Minh city attracts people as well as defines the city and its heritage.

The Cathedral looked really nice, we were sorry it was closed. The traffic around it is very busy and hard to cross the road., It looked great from the outside but we would of liked to go in.
