Perhaps one of the most stunning feats of colonial architecture in the historic Vietnamese city of Ho Chi Minh has to be the Saigon Central Post Office. So whether you are touring the cultural sites of Ho Chi Minh or if you have an important letter or parcel that must be couriered away ASAP, visit this iconic edifice and soak in the historical allure that permeates its interiors. The best way to soak in the city’s vibrant sights is to check into one of the central Ho Chi Minh City serviced apartments available, and the Somerset Chancellor Court Ho Chi Minh City affords some of the finest service apartments in Ho Chi Minh City. The elegant interior of the Saigon Central Post Office is one that must be witness firsthand. Its genesis dates back to the early 20th century when the country was under the rule of French Indochina, and it was designed and built by Gustave Eiffel, the genius behind the ever-iconic Eiffel Tower that graces the Parisian skyline. Currently, the Saigon Central Post Office serves as an important hub of postage services, but many visitors also come here to check out the opulent historicity of the building itself. So bring your camera and capture this elegant locality when you visit Ho Chi Minh next.
