Hotel Continental Saigon

Hotel Continental Saigon, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
I'll just get the posts on hotels out of my system :) Taken on Day 2, when we skipped the last lecture and walked all the way from Intercontinental Asiana to the market. This hotel is even older than the Majestic. It was built in 1880. Which incidentally is the same year the Notre Dame Cathedral , Saigon central post officer and Hotel de Ville was built. The building is on Dong Khoi which is one of the main roads in Ho Chin Minh. It has been featured in a Hollywood movie called " The Quiet American". Have you watched that? ( I havent)
