In the centre of HCMC, at the end of Nguyen Hue, sits the magnificent office of the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee. Completed in 1908 by the French, the former Hotel de Ville's design is based on the Paris original. It remains as one of the most stunning colonial monuments especially when floodlit at night. Make sure to visit the statue of Ho Chi Minh on the /median strip outside.
Keep in mind that because Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee is a working government building, the public is not allowed inside. However, don't let that stop you from taking a bazillion photos of the photogenic cream and yellow architecture from outside the building. On the roof is a bell tower placed on a pyramid-shaped podium. Pose outside the building and snap some memorable shots of one of Saigon's most famous landmarks.
