According to the southern city’s Department of Tourism, as of October 1 the tour has welcomed nearly 5,000 domestic and international visitors.
The number of foreign holidaymakers keen on the programme has steadily been increasing, the department added.
Most notably, from now until December, visitors will not only have the chance to view some parts of the building and be given information about the history, architectural highlights, and function of the building, but they will be able to visit several exhibitions featuring beautiful landscapes. In addition, the exhibit will showcase the friendliness of local people through unique images.
Local people and visitors will be able to register a trip visiting the municipal People's Committee headquarters building at travel agents, the website www.visithcmc.vn, or by scanning the QR code.
The headquarters of the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City, previously known as the HCM City Hall or “L'Hôtel de Ville”, is one of the most ancient architectures in the southern metropolis.
It was built from 1898 to 1909 and was designed by the French architect Femand Gardès, drawing inspiration from the bell tower style in Northern France. Since 1975 the site has been the workplace of the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City.
The People’s Committee Building of Ho Chi Minh City was first recognised as a national architectural relic back in 2020.
