What people are saying:

Old post office building. A place where it is pleasant to be at any time. You are easily transported in time. An example of colonial architecture from the French colony. Phone cabins reminded me my childhood, when my mother and I used them to call our relatives from a Post office. There are also souvenir shops in the building, which are a bit cramped. The Post Office works as intended: you can buy and send postcards.

    Beautiful but crowded

    The architecture is brilliant, high ceilings and ample day light but all of this gets overshadowed by the number of people inside. Apart from stamps there are a lot of other things one can buy from ...

Additional Information

Introduction

The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is a French colonial post office built in the 19th century. The exterior of the Post Office resembles an elaborate train station. Wherever you look, everything is intricately designed and decorated. The dates of the Post Office's construction (1886-1891) are inscribed beneath the large clock over the main entrance. Walk into the Post Office and you'll find a spacious lobby with a classically arching ceiling, round windows, hanging chandeliers, and stunningly gorgeous wall lamps, among other decorative features. Beneath the old map on the wall, there are classic phone booths from which you can make international calls. While visiting the Central Post Office, consider mailing a postcard home.
