Saigon Central Post Office

knol2go knol
Constructed in 1886, Vietnam's largest  post office, the Saigon Central Post Office, is a fine example of French Neo-classical architecture. Interestingly, this is one of Gustave Eiffel's (of the Parisian Eiffel Tower fame) creations in South East Asia. The post office building also incorporates Chinese, Khmer and Vietnamese architectural elements. The floor tiles are imported from Marseille, France. Inside the building, one would be awed by the tall columns, vaulted ceiling and arches. One of the favourite interior structures among tourists and visitors is the row of vintage telephone booths in the form of wooden cabins - see photo on the next page . Inside these cubicles, dwellers of Ho Chi Minh City a century ago would make long distance telephone calls. There are also benches and seats for visitors to pen their letters and write their postcards. A portrait of Ho Chi Minh hangs at the end of the main hall.
