A Walk Down Rue Catinat, Saigon

22 – Caravelle

Finally, another view of the Opera House on a rainy evening. Looming over it is the last famous hotel on Rue Catinat – the Caravelle (1959), housing numerous foreign embassies and the offices of the New York Times and the Washington Post during the War. The original building sits to the right of the high-rise tower.
