Saigon Central Post Office is a must visit for all…an absolutely delightful place to buy postcards and sit comfortably on wooden benches and mail them back home…!! Located in downtown Ho Chi Minh City, near the Notre Dame Cathedral, it was built between 1886-1891, when Vietnam was part of French Indochina and is undoubtedly the most grand and impressive post...

Still functioning building, although inside entrance is inundated with tourists and souvenir shops. Maps on wall show the country and parts of its heritage, and pictures of figures make it interesting place during the day to see and experience the crowds/traffic. Visiting in evening much different atmosphere, very quiet.

You must take a visit to the enormous post office. The architecture and history should be seen. It is also a cool place to go when the song gets too strong!

We were just wandering around the city and saw this fantastic French building and didn't really realise it's importance but on entering it is stunningly beautiful. It has such elegance even though there are quite a few reasonably priced tourist shops inside. There are a number of wooden ATM'S on both the left and right as you enter, each appear... More
