The building itself still operate as a post office, don't expect something huge like European architecture, this is just small but beautiful old building.

Completely lacking any signposting or guides, we stumbled onto this by accident. It's crawling with older tourists trying to post postcards, and while the architecture was pretty impressive, it's fairly meaningless without a guide or even signage.

Nice to check out the old French architecture. Not much to do inside. But you can post a letter if you like

Very interesting stop while visiting Ho Chi Minh City. Gives you a persective when it was a station. Old telephone booths and the clocks on the wall reminds you what it used to me many years ago.
