Other colonial structures included in the tour are Notre Dame Cathedral, built in the late 1880s by French colonists, is one of the few remaining strongholds of Catholicism in the largely Buddhist Vietnam, unfortunately this is currently being renovated so you can only view from the outside. the General Post Office, constructed when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the late 19th century and City Hall, although this elegant colonial building is not open to public it is a great photo opportunity.
