The Central Post Office was on our tour so we went there. The architecture was nice but the place was very busy so it was difficult to get nice pictures. Apparently, it was designed by the same architect who designed the Eiffel Tower.

One of the main places to visit. Not. It's just an old building with a few french colonial bits in! Not really worth the effort

Lots of history surround this iconic building. Great architecture and ambiance inside adorned by a large image of Ho Chi Minh

Amazing floor tiles. Nice escape from the heat (although no aircon, just fans — but better than being outside in the heat). Shouldn’t take you more then 5 mins to have a look and grab a photo.

Just across from Notre Dame is the historic post office - it’s a beautiful building and still operates as s post office today. Worth a trip if nothing else just to admire the French influence.

It is opposite to the big church and next to the Book Street. Around there are a lot to see too! Visit time takes 10 min. Very impressed!

Quite a landmark beside an old church . ATM machines available here also. Selling a lot of handicrafts, post cards and other post services. Staffs are capable of English speaking, don't worry.

Beautiful building, located right next to Notre Dame Cathedral, sells literally thousands of different post cards that you can mail to friends right there, they even sell you the stamps necessary when you purchase the postcards, great photo op.

I remember those banks of phones in Post Offices across Europe, back in the day! Not needed now in the Mobile Phone generation! Great to see they haven't removed them - a great colonial experience until you look up at Uncle... More
