HCM City Post Office among world’s most beautiful post offices

The Ho Chi Minh City Central Post Office was ranked second on the list of the 11 most beautiful post offices around the world, which was announced by the US magazine Architectural Digest in its latest edition.

According to the magazine, the yellow façade and green shutters of the post office have turned the building into not only just a post office but a popular tourist attraction.

The structure was designed by Alfred Foulhoux in the late 1880s in a European style boasting Gothic, Renaissance, and French influences combined with Asian decor. It fascinates tourists with its typical colonial French features, ranging from exterior to interior decorations.

The post office offers all kinds of traditional postal services such as mailing, selling postcards, and selling stamps, whilst foreign money exchange is also available./.
