Ho Chi Minh City is a city that retains the remnants of French Saigon and is sometimes referred to as Oriental Paris.
Cafe culture is rooted in the city and is everywhere.
In the central area of District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City, there are still colonial-style buildings built during the French Indochina era, which is a tourist attraction.
We would like to introduce the Saigon Central Post Office, which is said to have been built using the Orsay station building (currently the museum) in Paris as a model.
It’s about 8-10 minutes walk from Prostyle Hotel Ho Chi Minh, so be sure to stop by once when you come to Ho Chi Minh City.
The Saigon Central Post Office was designed and built by Eiffel Tower designer Eiffel in 1891.
The interior is characterized by a spacious arch-like design.
Although it is colored orange in the photo, it was actually renovated in 2015.
Before that, it looked like a whitish pink, so it might have been pinker when finished.
The interesting thing is that you can see the maps of 1892 and 1932 in the building.
You can see how Saigon was the central hub of the Cambodia area from southern Vietnam.
And I also feel that there is a telephone box at that time.
It is wooden.
The Saigon Central Post Office is also a souvenir spot.
Postcards and old stamps are recommended for first-time visitors.
In particular, I don’t see stamps at souvenir shops on Dong Khoi Street, and I feel that the postcards here are also well designed.
If you need souvenirs for many people, it is convenient and convenient.
It is still in operation, so you can send mail.
Saigon Central Post Office is a very romantic spot.
Please drop in when you come.
