    Do hope it will be brought back. Loving the building. Doubt whoever own, why don’t they turn it into a little hotel or restaurant. Such a great location.

    The guard there said it is currently used as a storage. When I was there, there are cars parking inside. Hard to believe why they cannot see its potential!!

    The look in the 1st pic can be made into some sort of “haunted house” like the one in Disney Land.

    No, I was told it was owned by UNISCO … sth like that 😀 I don’t reckon such a great building would be easily turned into something when everyone agree it is priceless. If you know what I mean!

    @ Yeng: does thie building look scaring to you? heehe

    @ Phossdey: Another building not far away from it is the office of UNISCO. I used to hear a rumor that FCC has bought the building, but it has never been confirmed.

    So did I get this one wrong? 😀

    I’m into colonial buildings, they’re classic, maybe I have the picture to introduce in my own blog?

    Well, in VN, all the buildings are much mightier than here, I admire them for taking such a good care, although we didn’t enjoy the moment of French control, but we must keep all these to record our history.

      Yeah it is true there are more well-cared colonial buildings in VN. There are some amazing church buildings in PP too, but sadly they were destroyed during Pol Pot regime.
