A prominent landmark and possibly the most photographed structure in the city, People's Committee Building serves as a city hall. Initially built as a hotel at the turn of the 20th century, the building faces a landscaped square with a standing statue of Ho Chi Minh raising his right hand to greet his followers. The building is most impressive at night, when artificial illumination makes it look like a European castle. Sadly, you'll only get to admire the French colonial style exterior, as the interior remains closed for public.

Colonial influence in the middle of the city. Really nice building to look at. especially in the evening once it is all lit up. more »
Our guidetook us to the Committee building as part of our tour in the afternoon. If in Ho Chi Minh, you would definitely see this building. You cant go in, but we learnt a lot from out guide. more »
Very beautiful building both in the day and at night. You can not go inside, but great to look at from the outside. It is great to see at night from the park across the street when the lights are shinning on it.
One of the great spot to define Saigon in its glory. Located right in the middle of Ho Chi Minh city centre. Close by surrounded by businesses and shopping centres too if you need. At the moment it's still under major renovation with metro is underway through out HCMC.
