The list includes the Mausoleum of President Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi Children's Palace, Dong Xuan market, St. Joseph's Cathedral, the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, and Hanoi Opera House.

Pham Thuy Loan, vice head of the National Institute of Architecture, said that Vietnamese architects acquired Western concepts and expressed them in new forms that suit the local climate and culture after French colonial rule, despite shortages of infrastructure, material and technology.

The book features images and 200-word introduction of the iconic constructions in each Southeast Asian nation’s notable city.
