The first post office of the French colonial period in Ho Chi Minh City was built at the end of the 19th century. It is completely made up in the French style. The post office has more than 100 years of history and is one of the most widely known buildings in the area. The post office has been operating for more than 100 years. It seems as though the government has not taken any special measures to protect the building. Other than being used as a post office, it is a good place for sightseeing. Today, it is a famous landmark in Ho Chi Minh City and it is frequented by many people every day. Almost everyone who visits will make a stop here to post postcards. At first glance, it looks like a station, the hall is gorgeously decorated, and a large portrait of Ho Chi Minh is hung in the most prominent position on the wall.
In the past, you used to be a state-run post office and become a visitor center. You can also send postcards here, but this is not its main function.
Not only can you see the changes in Vietnam.
You can also see traditional Vietnamese craftsmanship.
These paper products are very delicate and each one is exquisite.
With the changes in the function of the post office, it has now become a must-see destination for every visitor.
