Worth having a look at this palatial building which goes back to how the post offices ran in the past. Two rows of counters for the personal touch. But there are also the old telephone cubicals which are still in use.

Stumbled upon it. Still intact from way back when. Worth a minute to pop in and look. Old phone booths converted to ATM machines. Interesting.

During December and January, there are so many girls here wearing Vietnamese traditional dress Ao Dai for taking graduation pictures.

Actually there is very little to see on Saigon by way of historic buildings. The post office is one of them though not really old. Good architecture and maintenance with souvenir shops and a functional post office inside make it worth a visit.

Saigon Central Post Office is a nineteenth century landmark with an imposing portrait of Ho Chi Mihn. It is a popular landmark frequented by countless visitors. Visit to the Central Post Office can be combined with a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral, another major landmark, which is just across a street from the post office. Both landmarks are about 10...

Saigon Post Office is in the central of the city. This ancient architecture was built by the French many years ago. Check out the phone booths, the carvings, the windows, the ceilings and the floor. It is worth a visit.

Not much to say here. It's a post office. Admire the architecture...but it really is just a post office.

Exterior of building is very eye pleasing. Inside I found a mass of people, gift shops and a large picture of Ho Chi Minh. There wan't anything to keep me there so it was a very short visit.
