Located beside the cathedral, this post office still retains its colonial flavor. It is much nicer and busier than the ones I have seen at Cambodia and Laos. Definitely recommend dropping by this area and sending postcards to your friends overseas.

A perfect example of the oppulance from the era it was built. Not just a Post Office but a little market area and a pleasantly cool place to sit and rest during a city tour

This is the best post office I ever seen. The building is so classic and oriental with the white color. I sent a postcard from here back to myself. Cant wait to receive it!

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!
