The inside of the central post office in Saigon is unlike any other post office in the world. Not only is it a fully functioning post office, but it also is  one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city. The building was constructed when Vietnam was still part of French Indochina in the early twentieth century... and the building has a Gothic architecture style. There are also a bunch of little shops inside that like to overcharge tourists... although, it is a great place to get a "motorbike coffee table book". If you look in the back, you will see an image of Ho Chi Minh.

The outside of the post office is also one of the most popular places in Vietnam to get wedding photos taken. Bonus image below!! (there were actually a line of couples waiting to get their photo taken at this spot)
