"Buu dien - French colonial architecture" Post Office Tip by JohanIsWeg
Post Office, Ho Chi Minh City: 69 reviews and 153 photos
Another example of French colonial architecture, Saigon’s post office (Buu dien) was designed by Eiffel of Eiffel Tower fame. The glazed and vaulted roof and arched windows is a reminder of early European railway stations. Suspended ceiling vans turn lazily against the backdrop of a huge Ho Chi Minh painting against the back wall. An island counter in the middle of the hall sells tourist memorabilia.
There are some giant maps and a number of clocks near the entrance, indicating the time of cities such as Tokyo, Beijing, Seoul and Pretoria.
Staff members are quite relaxed about visitors taking photographs.
Address: 2 Cong Xa Paris, District 1
