District 1’s Historic Landmarks

Reunification Palace: Also known as Independence Palace, this historic landmark is the symbolic site where the Vietnam War officially ended after a North Vietnamese tank plowed through its main gates resulting in South Vietnam’s surrender. The five-story building is a true time capsule brimming with war artifacts from telecommunications equipment to old-school propaganda materials. After exploring the underground bunkers and secret rooms, head upstairs to check out the rooftop’s helicopter and saunter the palace lawn to admire the aforementioned tank.

Municipal Theatre: If this famed opera house looks familiar, it’s because the facade was influenced by Paris’ iconic Petit Palais. The architecture screams French Colonial, and the decor and furnishings were actually drawn by a French artist and shipped directly from the fashion-forward country. After witnessing the awe-inducing exterior, be sure to attend a performance or show; the cozy theatre fits 500 and hosts a variety of artistic performances.

Saigon Central Post Office: One of the city’s oldest buildings is also one of its most famous. The Post Office is still functioning today, but the French architecture and vintage telephone boxes speak to its grand history. Head inside to catch its signature attraction; two historic maps — detailing the city and its surroundings from 1892 — painted on the walls.

Notre Dame Cathedral: You’ll be greeted by the Virgin Mary statue out front as you enter the red brick facade of this emblematic cathedral. The iconic bell towers still ring bronze bells to this day, and the church is still fully functioning. If you’re unable to tour the interior, relaxing in the serene gardens is time well spent.
