On that note, a visit to this beautiful location can be included as a walking tour around the Major settings of Ho Chi Minh City in your itinerary.
This embodiment which represents the colonial presence in the city was established by the French empire in the 18th Century. The Duc Ba Cathedral flaunts the eminence of European architecture, highlighting the features of the Neo-Romanesque Period along with a touch of the Eastern culture. The history of this beautiful landmark boasts to have inherited its beauty from the sourced materials of France.
