The Saigon Central Post Office is one of the architectural highlights in Ho Chi Minh City. This post office is located on Paris Commune Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, and was built around 1886–1891 in the neoclassical style according to the design of architect Marie-Alfred Foulhoux.
In addition to its historical value, the Saigon Post Office is also an attractive tourist destination in Ho Chi Minh City. On the outside, the front of the building is decorated with rectangular sections, each bearing the names of the inventors of the telegraph and electricity industries. In the middle of the post office gate is a large clock with a classic style, below which are numbers indicating the years of construction and inauguration of the post office.
Inside, in front of the building is a large arch with an iron canopy. Between the ground floor windows are rectangular decorative sections. Inside, visitors will clearly see two maps about the history of the Saigon telecommunications system: the map on the right is of Saigon and its surrounding areas in 1892, and the map on the left is of the telegraph lines of Vietnam and Cambodia in 1936.
When visiting the Saigon Post Office, you will have the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Vietnam and enjoy the beauty of French architecture. I wish you an interesting trip!
