In recent days, young people in HCM City have been flocking to the Saigon Tax Centre, not only to buy products but also see the place, considered by many to be a symbol of the city, before it is torn down.

Nguyen Ngoc Thuy of Binh Thanh District, said that the Saigon Tax Centre is something she remembers very well from her four-years in the city. She wants to take a walk around the place before it is gone.

Many others also share a nostalgic attachment to the building, and regret that it will be demolished.

On occasions such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the Saigon Tax Centre attracts crowds of young people with its colourful decorations. They come to buy products or just take photos.

But recently, many photos posted to social media sites using the centre as a backdrop  express a regret that the structure will not be around for much longer.

Built in 1880, it is the oldest trade centre in HCM City. It has had its share of ups and downs of the history, but has remained something of an icon.

The Saigon Tax Centre will be cleared away for the construction of a 40-floor building.
