Nothing much to see, but i'm not really into architecture..its a nice old building looking a bit like a train station. This is an attraction on nearly all walking city tours.

Nice building. I posted a postcard here because it was so convenient! Also imagine it would be convenient to post things home that you bought in Vietnam? Interesting that it was designed by Gustav Eiffel!

Central Post office is a well known tourist spot. Worth to go for a visit. The post office is still running and it brings us back to the old Saigon as the city is so modern and changing fast these years.

When you enter the central, it feels a bit like going back in time. The design and scenery is very likely and beautiful. Cheap to send something and the help is very nice

This is just an architectural history of Vietnam's past being a French Colony. One of the most visited sightseeing spot in Ho Chi Minh City. There are gift shops inside for souvenir shopping. Situated in a busy area.
