Cho Quan Church

Great views from the tower

What we say: 3 stars

While the existing church, built by one Father Nicolas Ham who is now buried under the foundation, is more than a century old, it was built on the site of two earlier churches destroyed in wars - the original was constructed in 1720.

The current church has been repeatedly upgraded and much of its turn-of-the-century charm has gone with it and its neon lit Jesus Crucifix.

The proper upkeep does have an upside as it is one of the only churches that allows guests into its tower, which offers great views of the district.
