This iconic building is a photo opportunity in the making. You need to go inside, step back in time and acknowledge how history can be saved in our modern world. Beautiful architecture,

Its a post office. The building is large and old but the architecture isn't anything that blew my mind especially with the Cathedral across the street. If you already want to see the cathedral it is nothing to cross the street and peak inside.

Nice architectural details both inside and outside the building. The place and its surrounding area is bustling and energetic. If interested in architecture, history and people watching would stop by for a few minutes and take a look.

Sweaty, busy, postcards available, fairly easy to mail. Overall, it's like going to the post office. Only slightly more interesting architecture. Nice for your family at home.

Visit the Post office if you have lots of time. If you are limited on time, you aren't missing much. Its great to see if you are on the Saigon City tour, but don't bother making an extra effort to go see it.

Well it's supposed to be one of the top ten touristic places to visit. But truly speaking it's a bit hyped. The structure is undoubtedly nice but nothing much to see inside the building. Regular post office with a lot of hustle bustle and expensive gift shops. You shouldn't spend more than 5 mins from your busy schedule.

a rather old colonial building converted some time in the past to the main post office , the building itself inside and outside was was very interesting with loads of small stalls selling local tourist tat.

This will only take you 10-20 minutes at most and you can do it as a walk by. The architecture is great in particular from the inside. Makes for good photographs and costs nothing to enter. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area as you can do the Catholic Cathedral at the same time.

Very nice building, no doubt about that. But once you enter, you're in a shopping area rather than a post office. Knock off posters of Tintin (Tinin Au Vietnam, are you kidding me?) and the like. When you can see trough that, it's a great hall, the phone booths speak to my imagination, and the portrait pf Ho Chi Minh... More
