  • I went only as a tourist to admire the building, so I have no clue how quality the service of the post office looks. But the building itself is beautiful, and opposite the street from Notre Dame cathedral, so worth popping in if you're in the area

  • As a functioning post office, it's horrible. I called their hotline, the automated machine asked me to wait on the line and then it hung up on me. There's no lines, so people are pushing and shoving (even foreigners). I speak some Vietnamese, but I can't read. When I asked them about prices, they told me to go look at their website. I told them I can't read Vietnamese, they told me to go look at their website, again. Instead of repainting the building, they should have focused on other priorities. #Vietnam.

  • Must visit place. You can find many beautiful postcards and other souvenirs here. Beautiful architecture of European style.

  • wonderful architecture! inside the building is a bustling government office filled with tourists who want to send postcards to their loved ones. liked the gift shops at the two sides of the office, better than the night markets where you have vendors who'd coerce you into buying their products.

  • Good sightseeing spot for picture taking and to send someone a greeting post card. There are tables and a postcard counter for visitors to buy and send post cards. For once surprise your love ones with a hand written postcard. When were the last time you did that? Lol!
