As I had to send a parcel back to France, I took the opportunity to visit one of the most famous monuments of the city, the central post office.
Located just a few meters in front of the well-known Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, the central post office has some history to share. It is indeed one of the most famous buildings that remain from the colonial era. In other words, the central post-office is more than just a simple historical monument, it is a symbol.
However, I have to say that, on a purely aesthetic point of view, it is not impressive at all. I am not a specialist but, to my opinion, it is just a post-office that reminds me of some French train stations, nothing to write home about. Nevertheless, it is still nice to see it as a symbol, particularly because it gives a good idea of what could be found in terms of architecture during the colonial era.
Anyway, the service was great, and the parcel arrived pretty quickly in France, after all that is what I was looking for.
This building worth a quick visit but there is no need to linger, a few minutes should be well enough.
