86 Lê Thánh Tôn, Ho Chi Minh City, , Vietnam

Along with the Archbishop’s Residence, this ranks as perhaps the most graceful and visually arresting colonial building in Saigon, full of rococo flourish and wonderful wedding-cake detail. Originally built by the French from 1902 to 1908, the building has been in active use as the assembly hall for the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee (the local Communist authority) since 1975. Visitors aren’t allowed inside, but it’s the façade that’s most impressive anyway—especially when framing the statue of Ho Chi Minh himself that rises from the gardens opposite the front door.
