This was a great place to visit and learn about. I recall there was a truly old Vietnamese gentlemen sitting there when I first visited in 2015 with a typewriter helping other people! Great Saigon history here. Superb people watching. Elegant architecture. Worth your time!

I remember those banks of phones in Post Offices across Europe, back in the day! Not needed now in the Mobile Phone generation! Great to see they haven't removed them - a great colonial experience until you look up at Uncle... More
