Lovely building in the colonial French style. Still functions as a post office but also has stalls in selling interesting posters and souvenirs. Look out for the public letter writer, a white haired elderly gentleman who can translate Viet into English and French.

Nothing special, if you are already nearby it is worth a drop by. It is not really large or majestic. Nevertheless fun to see some old phone boots and rethink how it would have been back in the days.

This building's architecture may be its drawing card, but a walk by is all the time you need to appreciate it. It is a tourist trap. One point of interest...some of the old teak phone booths are re- purposed for ATMs.

It a post office! The architecture is French Colonial and the interior is well maintained! The interesting thing was we saw a 'Public Writer' a person that will write a letter or card in several languages for those that are illiterate.

This is a stunning building which looks inside like a train station! Designed that way?! It is a working post office with lots of souvenir stands and girls dressed in Viet national dress. Great frontage with lots of tourists taking photos

The post office is still active. Just for fun, you can send a postcard from here to home. Great to take pictures too inside and out. Great if you only have a day at Ho Chi Minh, do a walking tour (you can walk by yourself without tour as well).

The place has been built by the french people years back and has been beautifully maintained by the locals. There are nice shops selling local artifacts. Worth a visit.

The family visited this iconic, bright yellow facade building! It's hard to miss it cos it just stands out. The French architecture inside and out is worth a visit.

The Central Post office, opposite the Notre Dame Cathedral is a beautiful sight in Ho Chi Minh City. Beautiful French architecture, huge halls and old telephone booths converted to ATM machines! They have a great souvenir shop inside selling old stamp and coin collections, purses, keychains, thirst, postcards; you name it and you've got it.
