Often featured on day tours in Saigon, the post office was a good 15 minute pit stop. The architecture itself inside is quite impressive. There are many gift shops to purchase assorted souvenirs. A good photo opportunity for travellers. The post office itself is fully functioning so if you buy any large souvenirs you can ship it home.

It's nice to see that building from both outside and inside. Enjoy :) Sorry don't know what else to write but I have to. Beware of the traffic as always.

You'll pass in front of post office for sure. It's in the centre of the city, in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. Ther's nothing more to see then the portrait of Ho Chi Mins and two painted maps of ancient vietnam. Inside there are souvenir shops but you can also buy postcards and stamps.

The architecture is amazing. It's good to see they preserve this style instead of ripping it down. There are people viewing this building all through the place and the funny part is, that there are staff behind all the counters and customers doing post office business. Staff just carried on their business as though we weren't even in the building.... More

Great free place to visit during the heat of the day. Air-conditioned and nice and cool. Off the main entrance on both sides are very well stocked souvenir shops. Reasonably priced and no haggling. A much more pleasant experience than Binh Than Market or the street sellers. Buy a post card and send to a friend. Great free thing to... More

Do spend 10 minutes soaking up the gracefulness of this Gustav Eiffel-designed building. Still a fully functioning post office, with its yesteryear charms preserved. Notable mural maps flanking the entry way.
