The outside is nice, the inside you can just walk in a few steps, then it is blocked for worshipers. It is nice but not spectacular. Not much to see.

We went there on Sunday afternoon, there was a mass so we could join as well. I love the architecture and interior design. It is so beautiful....but one point they should clean up inside of the cathedral, it was full of dust (especially on the top ceilings) can be seen. And....it was so sad some people write on the outside... More

Outside us all you need to see. Bricks brought from FRANCE and all that. Inside a disappointment, but who cares?

Well maintained with beautiful glass windows. Centrally located and right next to the post office. Doesn't take long to see, and is right across the street from the post office. Recommend strongly!

The views are amazing and worth the 200k entrance fee. The drinks at the bar are super super expensive. Still would recommend a visit to the viewing floor.

Right across the street from the central post office, this cathedral was built from materials shipped from France. Not nearly as impressive as its sister cathedral in Paris, but the doors are original and there is a wall of thank-yous/remembrances in French, Chinese and Vietnamese. You're only allowed into the space right by the entrance unless you're worshipping. Your visit... More
