We do recommend you to pay a visit to Cu chi or Vungtau by boat, it’s safe and prevent you from the trafic. When looking at the front facade or the interior, please, use the audio to have the commentaries about the great work of Eiffel who has also erected 2 other monuments in Vietnam, the Longbien bridge and the Trangtien bridge, located in Hue and Hanoi. Actually, graduated from the prestigious Ecole Centrale, firstly, his renown was made thanks to various bridges for the French railway network : Gabarit Viaduc, Bridge of Bordeaux …

Discover the Notre-Dame cathedral of Hochiminh City

Notre Dame was built to replace the very old church located at the Central Post Office, according to the demand of Monseigneur Bishop. This old chapell can be visited at 180 Nguyen Dinh Chieu. It was also used for the classes of prince Nguyen Huu Canh. When looking at the Frenchconstructions and the old asian style, you can feel the differences between the use of wood, ceramics and metal, bricks. We strongly recommend you to pay a visit to the oldest house of Saigon, erected 200 years ago, after your day tour in Saigon.
