Paris Square may be a bit on the touristy side, but it’s the perfect hub for travelers looking to explore the key landmarks of Ho Chi Minh City in a single stop. The Saigon Opera House, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office are all within walking distance and the tree-covered parks, Versace Plaza and bustling cafes make for perfect places to people watch.
Find local workers gathering under the shade of towering trees while enjoying an al fresco lunch. And as the sun sets, watch street vendors, local traders file into the streets as church-goers head off to evening prayer. No matter the time of day, Paris Square is a perfect place to relax with a cold beer and a warm meal while the city passes by.
Paris Square is located between Nguyen Du and Le Duan near the Central Post Office, Notre Dame and the Reunification Palace.
