A very popular attraction which is always crowded but well worth a look. The interior is authentic, even with the old phone kiosks and stamp counters. Many souvenirs found here, just battle the crowds. Outside there are more sellers and food and drink stalls. A...More

This is one of the landmarks of Saigon. You can see the French influence in its architecture. It was also good to have a look at the collection of stamps that was in display then.

Beautiful old building with decent price souvenirs. Got a post card for 5k and sent it to America for 24k. Keychains for 10k each And they sell new and used stamps if you are a collector.

the architecture is amazing, but it's not that awesome until you'll have to spend like hours just to hang around and enjoying the post office.

In central Saigon, one can see a still-functioning post office, now also with some boutiques. The building includes some old-style telephone booths.

Reminiscent of an old fashioned grand railway station and still in use as a post office. You still feel that you have stepped back in time about 80 years. Some more 'crafty’ souvenirs for sale.

An interesting building to look at from the outside, and it's right next door to Norte Dame, but there's not actually much to see inside as it's still operational.

Building looks like a station but once inside you realise it's the post office - beautiful architecture and reminded me of Grand Central Station in New York!

A wonderfully preserved post office where you used to make long distance calls and handle all of your shipping needs. Still operating. Biggest plus is that this is a meeting place for photo opportunities. We had wedding parties, brides and grooms, school children on class...More
