Enjoyed the architecture and the juxtaposition between the very south-east asian buildings surrounding it compared with the very colonial style of the post office.

Given Canberra is my home town I was pleased to see our city on the wall of clocks!!

We have used a few post offices since traveling around the world or 9months and we found this post office o be great value for money, professional an everything got home (England) sooner that thought! On the other hand Bangkok post office in Thailand, very over priced and not good service!

Post office is located centrally in HCMC near the Church. There is good line of stores selling souvenirs and food inside and pay phones that has world time on top of it. Worth visiting for a few minutes if you are on tour.

This is a gorgeous building and a really wonderful example of French Colonial architecture in Ho Chi Minh. It also has some nice souveneir shops inside that sell some good items. In addition it is right across the street from the Notre Dame Cathedral, so you hit two birds with one stone!

I was surprised to see how functional and well preserved the inside of the station is. The French influence can still be seen here.
