“Shopping at Saigon Post Office”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Not only is the old Post Office a beautiful building to look at, it also has shops either side of the building entrance. These shops have a wide range of goods, and shopping is easy as there is no hard sell and constant hassling to buy. Therefore you can select, taking your time and not feel pushed. There is help available if you have questions about anything, and the sales staff are there, just not 'in your face' making it a great opportunity to shop for gifts etc. Definitely worth stopping in for both the building and the shops.

“Cool and interesting”

the central post office is unlike any post office i've been too. aside from the usual mail services, there are lots of memento stores inside. the ATM and the phone booths inside the post are very old school

“Yep... It's definitely a post office”

I don't get the big deal with this place... It's a post office where you post things and that's it... Unless you need to post something don't bother
