Saigon Central Post Office

Thanks Mr. Mark Wiens (source from

Right across the street from the Saigon’s Cathedral of Notre Dame, within the same city square, is yet another renowned landmark, the Central Post Office, that began construction back in 1886.
Again, just like quite a few other buildings in Saigon, it’s the French colonial architecture that really stands out.
But even more so here, one of the top reasons the post office is one of the top Saigon attractions is because it was designed by Gustave Eiffel (yes, the man who also engineered the Eiffel Tower in Paris).

What I liked about the Central Post Office, was that not only has it become a top tourism attraction, but it also remains fully in use and functional.
If you’d like, you can walk into the post office, buy a postcard from Vietnam, stamp it, and send it home to your friends and family right then and there.
Also, I also really loved the floor tiling as well as the giant map murals painted on the walls.
