Interesting architecture and old style phone booths

Worth a visit to take photos of the internal and external architecture. Have old style wooden phone booths. For people above 50s appears nostalgic. Great to take some photos... read more

Maybe I'm being harsh, but it was literally a walk in, have a quick look and then leave. The lonely planet bigged it up a lot more. Perks were that it was free to go in. And you can buy postcards and everything to post if you desire.

This is definitely a must see in Ho Chi Minh. The inside is simply stunning and you really don't want to miss it ;)

Worth a visit to take photos of the internal and external architecture. Have old style wooden phone booths. For people above 50s appears nostalgic. Great to take some photos while "making a phone call". Also have usual souvenir shops. Just across street from the Notre Dame church so can do both visits same time

It is worth a visit to the post office to admire the exterior and interior of the building which is very impressive. The architecture and decoration are very interesting and a example of french building styles in vietnam. Has some tourist items for purchase inside and some of the hreeting cards are unique and very nice.

The post office is a very fascinating piece of architecture. It is a great thing to see, however it only takes a short time as there isn't a lot to look at. I send a postcard home from here and it was very quick and easy.

This structure is something special. It's wide open so it doesn't have that standard utility government appearance. High high ceilings, marble floors with warm colours , mahogany looking arch covers and of coarse a large picture of "the man" Ho Chi Minh. Here is the tip. They sell little packets of assorted stamps in that brittle cellophane. You can get... More

It's a landmark. The architecture is french colonial and they've got some interesting artwork, notably a giant portrait of Ho Chi Minh that is good for photos or selfies. Other than that, it's a small, working post office. Get some stamps. Skip the souvenir shop. You can get better deals at the Ben Tanh Market. After you're done at the... More

Very impressive building reminded me of the NY Train Station. The interior was really old school and a delight to walk around!

Very interesting remnant during French colonial times of Vietnam. We just bumped into the facade while visiting Notre Dame Cathedral. Yes, located only next door to each other. Don't miss the square!

We visited this place as part of our tour. However, it was quite boring as there were also many people going around running their normal errands in the post office.We actually felt a bit out of place there as tourists. Even the souvenirs were not enticing enough for us to buy. Given a choice, we will probably skip this attraction.
