Stand back and admire the superb façade of the Ho Chi Minh City Hall with its high clock tower, arched windows and stylish engravings. Wander around the pretty gardens and get a photo beside the statue of Vietnam’s most famous revolutionary leader.
The vast white façade of Ho Chi Minh City Hall is one of the most memorable sights in the city. The design of the exterior was based on the Hotel de Ville in Paris and the Renaissance style is typical of the early 20th-century European architecture of the time. The building remains a working government office to this day. Although the interior is off-limits to the public, make a trip here to see one of the city’s finest colonial structures.
Approach the hall through the well-kept gardens. Stop and enjoy the views of the building from one of the benches and admire the neatly planted beds and curved pathways. Don’t miss the statue of famous former president Ho Chi Minh, depicted sitting and comforting a small child.
Stroll around the open courtyard in front of the building and look up at the arched windows and portals that run along the upper level of the cream-colored hall. The pyramid-shaped podium above the main entrance is possibly the building’s crowning feature and is adorned with classical motifs.
You won’t miss the tower that rises from the center of the hall. Notice the iron platform that surrounds the bell room and the glistening yellow star of the national flag that reaches into the sky.
Make sure you return at night to see the city hall at its best. Bright floodlights bring out the definition in the features and the cream-colored façade seems to glow with a light of its own against the night sky.
Ho Chi Minh City Hall is at the end of Nguyen Hue Street in the District One part of the city.
