Worth a quick look if you are passing by. It's a nice building, but it won't take you more than 5 minutes to looks around.

This is a major landmark in Ho Chi Minh City. Anyone who visits this city shouldn't miss such beautiful historical building.

If you like this style, a must. Beautiful inside and out. A nice place to look for some postcards on the two side aisles as you enter.

not sure I would go out of my way to see it. It is a great piece of colonial architecture along with Saigon's Notre Dame along side it

The Post Office in Saigon is very much worth a visit. It has an interesting history and worth taking photos of inside. I found the packing of goods for shipping was fascinating to watch. Take time out to go and have a look

Worth a visit if in the area. It is a working post office but looks more like a railway station. More European than Asian and is always busy. Visit together with Notre Dame cathedral and it highlights the colonial days of Saigon.

Not much to see, but it is a wonderful building. There's a small gift shop inside. Also some cool phone booths inside.

…but it's a POST OFFICE, people! Visit if you want to send or receive something, or you like old buildings. Otherwise, why??! Tip: Avoid the little tourist traps on either side of the entry.
