The Saigon Central Post Office is a must visit when in Saigon. It’s in downtown and hard to miss – both because of the immense amount of surrounding tourists and the unique architecture.
The post office was built during French occupation in the late 19th century. It sits across the street from another French remnant of the time, a cathedral, the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica.
The post office architecture has Gothic, Renaissance and French influences. It was constructed between 1886-1891.
