HCMC is the first destination we visited in Vietnam. We had a visit to Central Post, it was ok. We just took some photos and saw some stamps inside the building. The architecture is nice.

It's a nice and pretty building, we took some pictures, went inside to look at the souvenirs, but there's not much else to do.

The building is now a full tourist spot to buy small gift items. I took some good pictures of building and inside but the small shops didn't interest me like they did my wife :)

Nice functional site to visit. You can purchase souvenirs postcards etc. and send mail. Colonial architecture very close to the Notre Dame cathedral and a few minutes walk from the independence palace.

Good place for visit just opposite side from Noter dam de Saigon. With classical colonial French architecture. You could send the letter to anybody here.

If you need to post anything while in HCMC defiantly do it here. It’s an impressive building and reminder of past French rule. The cathedral next door is currently under renovation and not accessible.

Ask anyone around where to buy stamps or mail postcards and they'll say The Central Post Office. Super easy and lots of clerks to help make your effort worthwhile. The French Colonial architecture was appealing and close to other tourist spots.

The Post Office is grand and beautiful as an architectural icon of the French Indochina in Vietnam, and is a good place to get stamps or postcards as memorabilia. However, as a functioning post office, there is little more to it than viewing the architecture...More

The walk to the Central Post Office is really nice if you take the Book Street which is a pedestrian only, shaded by trees, book shop and cafe area right around the corner from the post office. This working post office is nice to see,...More

Visit, buy some stamps & postcards as gifts. Do it. Its cheaper than keychains and magnets, and is such a traditional thing to do!
