Central Post Office

Located right next to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the building was constructed when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the late 19th century.  Some sources say the building was designed by French architect Gustave Eiffel, some others say it was designed by Marie-Alfred Foulhoux.

Built between 1886 and 1991, the building is Neoclassical Architecture at its finest, according to some reviewers, and mixes Gothic Renaissance with a strong French influence.

One of the very special highlights in the post office is a mosaic of Ho Chi Minh takes pride of place at the end of its barrel-vaulted hall.

Opening Hours:
Monday – Saturday: 7am to 7pm
Sunday: 8am to 6pm
