It was great to see this beautiful building na learn about it history. It still operates as a post office but inside there are the normal tourist shops as well. Well worth a look to see the French influence within the region.

It’s always charming to visit this old post office when visiting Saigon. Take your time to enjoy a visit here and enjoy the architecture of Mr. Eiffel

This is a beautiful building. It is inspired by French architecture. The staff at the post office are fine. You can find a postcard here and stamps are cheap.

Once you get inside you feel that you travel geographically in a European city . A typical colonial building serving as a post office contains a big frame of Ho Chi Minh to differentiate itself .
