Saigon Central Post Office Tours

star-4.5
159 Reviews
Saigon Central Post Office
The design of Ho Chi Minh City’s Central Post Office, completed in 1891, mimics an old-world European railway station with soaring ceilings and a giant clock face. These rich details lead travelers to pause and soak up the brilliant interior of this architectural landmark, which includes hand-painted maps of the old city.

The Basics
Few major cities count the post office among their top tourist attractions, but the classic interior of Saigon Central Post Office continues to be a favorite destination among travelers visiting Ho Chi Minh City for the first time. It’s such a hit with visitors that it’s almost always included on city sightseeing tours, along with other top attractions such as Reunification Palace, the War Remnants Museum, and Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral. The post office is also a stop on the Ho Chi Minh City hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus—a fun and convenient way for independent travelers to tour the city at their own pace.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Saigon Central Post Office is a must-visit for architecture buffs and first-time visitors.
  • Bring your camera; the building’s interior is truly photo worthy.
  • Remember to keep your voice down inside, as this is an active workplace.

How to Get There
Saigon Central Post Office is located across the street from Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, near the corner of Nguyen Du and Cong xa Paris. It’s within walking distance of the Cong xa Paris bus stop.

When to Get There

The post office is open daily throughout the year, with shorter hours on Saturdays and Sundays. Come during daylight hours when the interior is at its most photogenic.

The Man Behind the Building
You might have heard, falsely, that this French colonial gem was the work of Gustave Eiffel, the man behind the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris. In fact, Saigon Central Post Office was the last work of Marie-Alfred Foulhoux, one of the city’s most influential architects.
