View of Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) from the Saigon River.
Notre Dame Cathedral in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) was built by French colonists from 1877 to 1880.
It was called Saigon until 1975 when it was renamed Ho Chi Minh City following its capture by North Vietnamese communist forces.
Although the city's commercial core is officially called Saigon, the entire city is widely referred to as Saigon even in the North.
The neo-Romanesque structure was constructed using stained-glass windows imported from Chartres and bricks from Marseilles. The Central Post Office in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) was built between 18 and is one of the oldest buildings in the city.
Designed by Gustave Eiffel, it is still in operation.
