Central Post Office, Ho Chi Minh City Reviews

  • It's a really nice building on the outside and on the inside there's this magic atmosphere where you can imagine what happened in the past in this very place. Only the hall is available to people plus two small galleries to buy souvenirs. 3 stars only because there's not much to see but it makes sense if you'll send some postcards home from.this beautiful place. It's part of this city's history so make sure to read enough about it.

  • It’s a beautiful building and not something you would commonly find in the post offices. We enjoyed the visit but at the end of the day it’s a 5 mins stop. It’s still just a post office, offering not much else but to admire its architectural beauty...or of course if you actually want to ship something

  • Beautiful French building in the middle of Saigon. It looks amazing in the day and at night. Be sure to walk about in it to check out the decor.

  • Iconic building of French colonial style, one of the most beautiful landmarks of Ho Chi Minh City, very close to another landmark of the city, that of the Notre Dame Cathedral. Amazing interior, with the tiled floor and the high roof that allows plenty of light. The place is full of tourists. Allow 30 minutes for a visit. Most recommended.

  • Best thing is right next to the Notre Dame Cathedral Of Saigon, too many tour as well, if you have no tour guide to tell you the story behind the building, you will only need to spend 5 mins here
