The City Hall is known by many names, including Town Hall, Hôtel de Ville and People's Committee Hall... this name should be the official one, I believe. It's a beautiful French colonial building that, at night, is lit up. Sadly it is not possible to viist it.. it's a working government building.

In front of the city hall there's a massive statue, dedicated to Uncle Ho... after Uncle Sam I guess. Uncle Ho is no one less the Ho CHi Minh himself, the father of the revolution and re-united Vietnam. In this statue he's portrayed reading a book to a child.
