“Very unique building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Very unique building that will post anything to anywhere. It retains all of its original features but still operates on a daily basis.

“One good history building to be visited!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

The activities inside this building just ordinary activities happened like in every post office in other places. What I love for sure is the architecture of the old building that so much French culture include. The place is clean. A lot of history you could find in it.

“Post Office for architecture and history lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

When in HCMC I always have to sneek into the HCMC post office and post a few postcards. For architecture lovers this is a well preserved building from the '10's of last century.
Its a good place for history fans, as you can see here how in the old days post offices were functioning in the pre- email era!
