Didn't really know what to expect when we were told to visit the post office. But this actually was well worth a visit. Nice souvenir shop. Impressive decor inside. Right next to the Norte dame cathedral, so can visit both attractions at the same time

A little bit of the old past, still very much alive and in use. Bustling and busy and a great place to take shelter from the rain. Good if you have a postcard to send too!

An impressive building with gorgeous architecture. You can pop in here easily on your way around Saigon and that is exactly what we did. I am glad we visited and you can do it in 40 minutes. Bonus!!

A glimpse of past and future. One of the must go places too.. The Cathedral is just opposite of this building and Saigon Square is approximately 10 minutes walk from it..

The architecture of the place is great and is just across the street from Notre Dame, so you get two for the effort of one. There are shop with very nice handcrafts that are really affordable, a good value!

A must see building, still in use as a post office. Hassle free souvenir buying at a very good price, a money exchange service, and a great photo opportunity. The staff were really helpful too.

This is a lovely place to visit. The building is beautiful and the shopping very good though it can get crowded when tour buses arrive. We went back early and it was much easier to look around

I ..here on the XO Tour for "Sites". Post Office is pretty. Make sure you speak with the 80 yr old man that has been working there since 16 yrs old. Also make sure you bring a post card to send to someone from that post office!
