A city landmark
In this square you can find one of the city's landmarks, the Opera House. Vietnamese couples often choose it as a backdrop for wedding photos, and it's interesting to see them posing between the columns, while groups of stylists and makeup artists offer advice. The Hotel Continental is here, an institution that became world famous during the war, as reporters and American military personnel were based here. The magnificent Hotel Caravelle is here, too; that's where I stayed, and the photos are from the windows.
