The post office reminds me of a railway station. Very ornate. They sell souvenirs and postcards as well. Check out the old telephone boxes which have now been converted to ATM booths.

Nice ambiance. Good image for old Saigon. Lot of cheap souvenirs and nice books. Worth a visit and a photo tour. Lots of nice angles for photographers.

What a wonderful roof. What great architecture. What a piece of history. It's a shame it isn't better maintained. I love the old telephone booths to call overseas.

Went in, spent about 10 minutes looking around then left. Beautiful architecture and is still a fully functioning post office. Sent a post card to New Zealand for around 1 USD including postage, cheaper than sending a txt home. The souvenir shops are very reasonably priced, no cost for entry to the post office.

I viewed the Central Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral within 20 minutes. It's something that doesn't take up much time but considering it's a tourist attraction I wanted to see what everyone was talking about. It is beautiful and worth a look but wont take much time to do.
