Stunning building both inside and out. Beautiful decor and some wonderful descriptions of its history. Also good that you can still buy a stamp there!

Go and have a look at how an old colonial post office used to work. I love the old phone boxes where you used to have to place international phone calls. Architecturally a very interesting old colonial building.

It is always busy, a favorite place for photographers. It is very cool to see for the sake of saying so, but beyond that there are far more places to visit.

We enjoyed the visit to the post office but I was a bit disappointed to see how they have turned it into a souvenir shop. It is worth to spare 15 minutes however, to sit inside and imagine how it was during the colony.
