The building has been painted and is now a vibrant yellow. Definite must for a visit. We headed here in the evening and the square in front was buzzing with locals enjoying time together

Beautiful architecturally designed building that is always very well looked after, inside is surprising large with a Hugh portrait of Ho Chi Minh on the rear wall. Active working post office and is well worth a visit.

What a surprise, right in the heart of Old Saigon. This amazing French colonial building was designed by Gustave Eiffel (yep! that Eiffel, as in tower!) and built in the late 1880's. It's bit of Paris right in the heart of HCMC. It's beautiful and is full of classic Eiffel design motifs (lot's of fancy ironwork, soaring arches etc.) It's... More

Enjoyed the post office visit. We met some year 8 students from the Vietnamese countryside who were practising their English and engaged in conversation with us and the kids. Lovely photo opportunity.

Not much to see but close to other things, so worth a look. Things for sale inside. I do not know what else to add. You can go inside and get some great photos.

Designed by the Eiffel company and it shows. A beautiful building which still operates as a post office. There are several shops which have good prices versus the others in the area and worth a browse to pick up some memories.
