General Post Office, Ho Chi Minh

The French had left behind a wealth of architecture in HCM. The 2 most prominent French legacies have to be the General Post Office and the Notre Dame Cathedral. If you happen to walk by Notre Dame Cathedral, then you should stopped by this Post Office, they are just side by side.






You can purchase postcard, writing and post it from here..It is a cool thing to be done in this very old post office.

仪仪妈咪, nice to meet you too, your daughter is very cute, I will add your blog in my blog list and explore it later. I will post more HCM places and foods soon. Then when you in HCM, you just follow the places and foods that I published, I supposed you will be enjoy there.

Colin, frankly speaking, I can't feel my both legs after the long walk, lost " feeling", hahahaha...

Rachel, I did, I post it back for my 3kids. This is what I always did when I travel with my husband without kids. I remembered when I was in Eiffel Tower Paris, I went up there and purchase post card and post it back for my kids, that was a cooler thing I did when I travelling.

Bakeling, Mia, Horlic and Cindy, this is a very unique post office, nice architecture...very French style..
