Paris Square (Cong Truong Cong Xa Paris) Tours

Paris Square (Cong Truong Cong Xa Paris)
Paris Square (Công Trường Công Xã Paris) serves as 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 Central Post Office are all within walking distance, and the tree-covered parks, Versace Plaza, and bustling cafés make for great people-watching.

The Basics
No matter the time of day, Paris Square is a perfect place to relax with a cold drink or a warm meal while the city passes by. Due to its central location in the heart of Saigon’s old city, Paris Square features on just about every city sightseeing tour. For a more comprehensive look at Ho Chi Minh City, choose a tour that includes this part of the French Quarter, as well as Chinatown (Cholon) and either a cruise along the Saigon River or an excursion to the fascinating Cu Chi Tunnels just outside of town.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Paris Square is a must-see for first-time visitors.
  • Bring some local currency in small denominations for a coffee or drink in the square.
  • Don’t forget your camera; some of Ho Chi Minh City’s most beautiful buildings stand nearby.

How to Get There
Paris Square is located between Nguyen Du and Le Duan near the Central Post Office, Notre Dame, and Reunification Palace. If you’re coming from outside the old city, catch a taxi or moto.

When to Get There
Many visitors find themselves in Paris Square during the day while sightseeing in the French Quarter. It’s also worth coming back at night to see the monuments illuminated after sundown.

The French Connection

It might seem odd to be standing in Paris Square in front of Notre Dame Cathedral while on a trip to Vietnam. During the French colonial era, this was the hub of commerce and administration in French Indochina. The influence is obvious, from the architecture to the local food, which often displays French influences.
Address: Cong Xa Paris, Ben Nghe, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

4-Day Discover South of VietnamMulti-day Tours

4-Day Discover South of Vietnam

Southern Vietnam covers the Mekong Delta, the extreme southern end of the Mekong River, and the area around Ho Chi Minh City (Sai Gon), Vietnam. As all deltas, it receives the bounty of the siltation from the upper Mekong, and as such is a very rich and lush area, covered with rice fields. It produces about half of the total of Vietnam's agricultural output (in fact the delta produces more rice than Korea and Japan altogether), and is the place for timeless sceneries of farmers planting or harvesting rice. The Mekong splits in Cambodia into two main rivers, the Bassac (Hau Giang) and the First River (Tien Giang), then in Vietnam into a more complex system, creating a maze of small canals, rivers and arroyos interspersed with villages and floating markets.
