Completed in 1891, when Vietnam was still part of French Indochina, Central Post Office boasts a fusion of Gothic, Renaissance, and French architectural influences. The building's unmistakably European marble floors and looping arches serve as a reminder of the colonial influence on the region. Look for the antiquated telephone boxes and maps painted on the walls depicting the telegraph lines that crisscrossed Vietnam and Cambodia. You can use this still-operational post office to send postcards from the onsite souvenir shops to relatives and friends. With our online itinerary creator, Ho Chi Minh City attractions like Central Post Office can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This post office is just worth the walk to get there It is so beautiful. Lots of room and just a working place but still like an attraction on its own.

  • This is a very nice and interesting place. Still functioning post office and the tourists may even buy post cards or cards to send to their loved ones back home because apparently, slow mail is still very popular here. The souvenir shops also sell many interesting trinkets and tokens for you to buy home. Beautiful. One of the places to come to if you are in the area.
  • Nice historical place and it's interesting that this functions till today. Lots of tourist come here for good photo point and also send post cards from here to love ones via snail mail. Building is well renovated and have a cafe beside this place. There are lots of smaller cafes around the area and very popular among the locals too.
