Situated in a lovely old part of town. Easy walk around the post office building and near the Cathedral. Would definitely go in and look at the architecture inside and old phone booths. Also an area where people, probably locals, still sit and pen letters.

I bought a few postcards and sent them out from here - the sell post cards ranging from 5,000 - 30,000 VND and they are so pretty! :) This was a very cool place and I reckon you don’t see much architecture like that around...More

There’s not a lot to see here besides the architecture. It is fun to buy a postcard from one of the shops inside (5000-45000 VND) and write home. I sent a letter to my nephew in Canada for $17000 VND. No admission charge and it’s...More

Most of the main cites in HCMC are Q1 and within very easy walking distance of each other. This is one of them, a stones throw from the Opera House, Notre Dame, People’s Committee Building, Reunification Palace etc. Well worth popping in.

A stunning building which is certainly worth a visit-an old French building which is a popular site. It also has a place to buy postcards and souvenirs and is located next to the Cathedral
