Saigon Central Post Office is located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, near Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, the city’s main church.
This dignified biggest post office in Vietnam was designed by Gustave Eiffel who also designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and built between 1886 and 1891 as a classic example of French colonial architecture.
The central pavilion is anchored by a large clock, which adds to its attractiveness, as do the arched windows stretching along the entire front of the building.
The elegant interior is the most interesting feature of this building. The vaulted and exquisite interior with its huge ceilings, glass canopy and a giant portrait of Ho Chi Minh has enough to impress visitors.
