Do you know if the current US Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City is built on the same ground as the former embassy? If so, do you have any photos of the transition?

Apparently the US Consulate is indeed built on the grounds of the former embassy. The embassy was used by PetroVietnam during much of the post war period and was demolished in 1998. [Wikipedia]
