It's a post office. Looks cool and old but it is in fact an operational post office. If going to a post office is fun then this is fun. It's close to other cool stuff so may as well check it out in the area.

Interesting building. If your enjoy architecture you will love it. Lots of souvenirs to buy if that’s your gig. Basically can be seen in about 30-40 minutes for the average person.

I could see the post office at work. At the same time I could admire the pictures on the walls. real pieces of art. Ho Chi Ming's picture is quite impressive. Many tourists moving around. Really worth to visit.

An operating post office but with added stalls and shops. Architecture is nice but super busy. Not worth much time.

It is worth making the effort to step inside the post office for the interiors are even more beautiful than the facade of the building.
