Nice place to buy stamps for a Philatelist.

Stamps and First day covers were available for Collectors although they were more high priced than the one selling them next door to the War Remnants Museum.

It's got some nice architecture. Recently under renovation. Very old building and still operating as a post office. Worth a visit - just keep your expectations low. It's free to visit, and you usually get what you pay for.

Nice to visit when walking around the city and the church is directly opposite. Not much more than to it than see, take a picture and move on.

Not seen a post office like this in the UK, very ornate but also very crowded and busy. Central location, well worth seeing the inside.

Eiffel must have travelled far to have designed this beautiful building. Wonder how much had to be restored after the wars!

Beautiful old building that is a must see. Gorgeous high ceilings, lovely old woodwork. They also sell products at a better price than the tourist markets. And they sell stamps!! Good service at the customer counters

On our travel, we normally purchase post cards to send to our family. We did, and yes, the building is worth a picture or two. Not much more.. Unless you are shopping for souvenirs..

This very old classic building was built by the French and remains pretty much untouched, has a nice gift shop and a good money exchange.

Enjoyed the building structure and the fact that after so many years it is still operating as a post office. The French certainly did an attractive structure. The current management repurposed the right bank phone booths into ATMs, very clever. Certainly enjoyed the visit.

A lovely building painted in the "French" yellow. It was fun to go inside. Great place to use your ATM card because you can get up to 6 or 8 million Dong. Not possible once you are in other Vietnam cities where you are limited to 2 or 3 million.
