Ho Chi Minh Central Post Office is one of the most popular sites for photographers. First opened in 1891, the Post Office has become the glorious example of French colonial architecture, designed by the very one who built Eiffel Tower – Gustave Eiffel.
Visitors can’t help to be enchanted by the shining lopping arches, the marble floors, telephone boxes – the representatives of an era where mobile phones and email hadn’t yet existed. Carved on the wall are the maps of regions – one showing telegraph lines in Vietnam and Cambodia and a map of Saigon in 1892.
Until this day, the building is still functioning as a post office with two wings beside the main office where you can purchase souvenirs, postcards, stamps, and lacquerware.
