Central Post Office

Husband found this very exciting - I found it less exciting. If you are going around in time, spend 10 minutes there. If not - it is not a disappointment not to see it

The post office is not as interesting as I expected. Inside there are stores for you to buy souvenirs from but they are a lot more expensive than Ben Thian Market.

The Saigon Central Post Office is a beautiful Building that is well maintained. At the sides are souvenir shops. This is a must visit when in Vietnam and do not forget to send out postcards.

I saw the post office on a Sunday afternoon but did not try to go in. It's the biggest post office I have ever seen and is sure a big older building.

Built by Eiffel, one of numerous parts of Saigon which recalls the history in style and appropriate manners. A hint of the charming French Indochina well kept by Vietnam, proud of its history without remorses and / or grudge

This is an impressive building which is the country's largest post office. It is still is use. The architecture is amazing outside as well as inside, with lots of fine details on the walls and ceilings inside.

This stunning building is a walking distance to the Notre Dame Cathedral. It has a picturesque facade and artistic ceiling design. Here, I met the last letter writer of Vietnam. He is an old man who sits inside the post office all day long. Our tour guide explained to us his contribution to the literacy of the Vietnamese people and... More

Wonderful external facia opposite Notre Dam. Was extremely busy inside and although an impressive building did not warrant any more than a few minutes to see it all.

Maybe I'm being harsh, but it was literally a walk in, have a quick look and then leave. The lonely planet bigged it up a lot more. Perks were that it was free to go in. And you can buy postcards and everything to post if you desire.
