It's just a nice place to visit and walk around. The church is close by so they go hand in hand. Some panhandlers peddling wares but it's to be expected. It's a pretty neat building if you're into classicals.

Beautiful building. Easy visit, and architecturally interesting. Just walk in and a pretty quick walk about for us. You can mail a postcard from here and there is souvenir available. Just across from the cathedral. so an easy two for one visit.

My friend that works in Vietnam, went to the Post Office a while back. I couldn't wait to see it for myself. Beautiful interior, and it is still a working Post Office. People were sitting inside writing postcards to send from this special place.

I remember those banks of phones in Post Offices across Europe, back in the day! Not needed now in the Mobile Phone generation! Great to see they haven't removed them - a great colonial experience until you look up at Uncle... More
