We visited this building with our tour group. The post office is kept in great shape. You can ever buy stamps here. Most of the building is a souvenir shop.

One of the most beautiful post office buildings ever! Very well preserved you can see Eiffel 's print all over the place. Loved the cartography. The shops at the entrance should be somewhere else since they take away the glamour of the place.

The architecture is very nice for a post office. And the atmosphere of the place with all the tourists writing postals is really cool. But it's definitely not a major attraction.

One of the most beautiful building in entire Saigon. If you love architecture you must come here to discover french influence in Vietnam. It's in very center of the city and there are many nice buildings around, many cafes. However nothing special indoor.

Not really much to see. It is a working post office. There are some souvenir shops inside, telephone booths and ATMs. That's about it.

The Post Office is very different from those seen in the Western world. Two long counters on either side of a central area have the clerical staff who deal with all matters that post offices normally do. There are shops which stock items aimed at the tourist. Interesting place.

This building was designed by Eiffel as a train station, and it looks like it inside. It is beautiful inside and cool with benches. See the portrait and old maps.

Went here on a group tour and was very crowded with tourists.The building is a beautiful piece of architecture both inside and out. It is still being used as a working post office.

A typical colonial French building influences, From its ornate furnishings, gorgeous-pattern-tiled floor to its massively high ceilings . The interior design is very elegant with the ceiling designed with arc shape which was carried by the two rows of steel pillars. , There are the two 1892 maps indicating Saigon as capital of the old-french Indochina that included Vietnam,Cambodia and...
