The title pretty much summarizes it all. It is a functioning post office that was designed by the French back in the 19th century. It looks nice and has a lot of different postcards you can send, but that's pretty much it. Maybe with a...More

The sparkling refurbished post office center in Ho Chi Minh City is a fine architectural masterpiece exhibiting mostly French sensibilities. However the interior is entirely Vietnamese in emphasis with a portrait of Ho Chi Minh prominently displayed at one end of a cavernous market arena.

The design of this building is stunning, not surprising given it was designed by Gustave Eiffel. Hard to believe it was ever actually a working post office. However, my trip was marred after I was robbed/conned by a taxi driver named 'Fern' (English pronunciation). having...More

This place is a wonder in terms of the building itself - beautiful tiles. A market along the front was busy but had some wonderful things. Worth checking out out if just for interior.

With the Cathedral closed for extensive renovation the Central Post office opposite is still worth a visit.

It’s a building of a great historical significance and have to say the government has maintained it well. The post office is still functional inside, which is a great deal. Sadly it’s too commercialised with too many stalls inside selling souvenirs. Must visit place.

Certainly not a highlight of my trip to Vietnam. Again there seemed to be more emphasis on the gift shops located on both side of the post-office. Don't fret if you can't fit it into your agenda

This building is quite beautiful and the post office is still in use. I recommend buying some postcards there and sending them home. Apart from that there is not much to do at this place.

I remember those banks of phones in Post Offices across Europe, back in the day! Not needed now in the Mobile Phone generation! Great to see they haven't removed them - a great colonial experience until you look up at Uncle... More
