Good piece of architecture

Very nice building, also interesting from the inside (clocks and big Ho Chi Minh portrait). Additionally, good souvenir shops ;) Same place as Notre Dame Cathedral.

This place is a good example of a classic building that is still a working post office. Stand back and take photos of the elaborate ceiling ( and of Ho Chi Minh). Buy stamps for good old-fashioned post cards that the attendant issues after looking carefully at the address. And then be prepared to have your photo taken by Chinese... More

Got to go as visit because of the history. Although I was surprised at the amount of visitors just headed for the gift shop rather than look around first.

Interesting building crowded with locals and tourists. Souvenirs available for purchase. A tourguide can point out other interesting buildings in or near the plaza.......Notre Dame church and roof of former American Embassy where helicopters evacuated last of the evacutees.

Great architecture and lovely to look at everything as it was. Thought the phone booths now turned into Eftpos machines was great. A lot of tourists there though.

Large old building, very interesting to go inside. Not just a post office. Also sold souvenirs. I bought a lovely little bag for$4.50. However found the same bag for sake on the Mekong Delta for $2.

The building is one of the best old style buildings in the city. Inside it was like going back 30 years or more in the UK as around the perimeter are counters serving different areas of Vietnam with different postal rates displayed. It reminded me a bit of Grand Central in New York, not as big though. It's well worth... More
