Opposite Notre Damm and worth a look if you are passing. Still a working post office from the French Colonial days. Look like a railway station. Free.

If you are doing a walking tour of Ho Chi Minh you should include the very grand post Office Building, which is adjacent to the Cathedral.

The central post office is a nice place for a quick walk and look around. There is no need for a tour, as it only takes a couple of minutes to visit. Plan you day so you can visit the cathedral, independence palace and the memorials in one go. It's all in walking distance.

The building is beautiful. So as the interior design. You can see a portrait of Ho Chi Minh as soon as you enter. They sell various souvenirs too. There is also a rack which provide "free postcard" but too bad it's empty.

We mistakenly approached the building from the rear, but were able to use an office for parcels to send our postcards. The staff were helpful, and it was funny to be pointed through a series of desks to buy a stamp and then post the card. We found the front entrance and saw that posting teh card would have been...
