Central Post Office, Ho Chi Minh City Reviews

  • beautiful old building with a touch of french architecture. pack with tourist. What surprise me most is it still working. there were people come in and out bringing parcels to post .

  • @tneoo Small souvenir shop/stall inside and the price quite similar to other souvenir shops which also located at District 1. I bought some postcards and made a hand-drawn postcard there. Can get the stamp from the shop/stall and the postage is cheap. Honestly, the post office is nothing much more but cool to see. The location is quite near to other attractions(walking distance) and there hv some nice cafes nearby as well.

  • Saigon post office is so old. The constructor is look like in Europe. Nice! One thing I don't like is the picture of uncle Ho. You can buy something here, many of souvenirs.

  • Sigon General post office is beautyful building in Ho chi minh city.we were visited General post office in Ho chi minh city on 29th August 2018.
