Central (government) post office qA designed by Gustave Eiffel, of “Tower” fame. There is much French influence left over from the Colonial days.

The century old French Post Office is a structure thats awesome! Especially if you go there in the evenings it looks stunning. The old structure is very well equipped with modern amenities. Theres an interesting counter in the middle of the post office which sells souvenirs. There are some shops just inside the periphery of the building which sells Vietnamese postal stamps. We loved talking a walk around the structure which is spacious and lively.

It's a beautiful building, well kept and full of history. I loved the fact they kept the old telephone booths which are now in fact ATM machines. It's really worth a short visit!

This working post office is of majestic scale and a hive of activity. It has such grandeur and style that it is a little sad that the postal system has lost so much importance in the last 20 years. In the front side isles you can find quite good Vietnamese souvenirs at reasonable prices

It's a nice building but essentially its just a post office. From here you can post letters and parcels all around the world, plus there are some ATMs and souvenier shops.
