Discover the unique and ancient architecture of old Saigon at Saigon Central Post Office
My name is An, I'm a newbie in Hive and that is the first time I have written in Pinmapple. I was impressed with this community because I discovered many good things here and I feel the world is really beautiful with the romantic nature of larger cities in many countries. I can see that Pinmaple is the perfect place to everyone describe the beauty of their country. I think this will be my love community of mine.
And the first post I write now, I will lead you to move to one special symbol of my country and it comes from the larger city which in brings the great president- HO CHI MINH.
And the special place is the Sai Gon central post office.
I was lucky when can live in and study in the largest city in our country, HCM is the most crowded and modern city in our country. thought the standard is higher than in other cities, it is also easier to earn money or business. Today I have a chance to go to District 1, I was impressed with the old building in the nostalgic beauty in the heart of the bustling and modern city. That is Sai Gon's post office.

Unique architecture outside
As a work of French architecture, from the outside, the post office stands out with a system of large doorways and domes. At the same time, with gentle yellow color and in the middle, there is a rather classic clock shape, which further embellishes the nostalgia for this place.
I think with an architectural work with a history of more than 100 years, Ho Chi Minh City Central Post Office is definitely an attractive destination so many tourists choose this place as a destination when they come to the city. Ho Chi Minh City.
This is also a work of historical significance and marked the development of Saigon in the past in the form of a modern European urban area. Along with other works such as Notre-Dame Cathedral, Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee headquarters, Nha Rong Wharf, and Ben Thanh Market, the Central Post Office of Ho Chi Minh City is a typical face of antagonistic urban architecture and is a tourist attraction.
Explore inside Saigon Post Office
Visiting Saigon Central Post Office, you will see that on both sides of the building are images of two historical maps of the city meticulously and delicately depicted. On either side of the entrance are rows of straight green iron columns and shiny brown wooden chairs. In the center of the post office is the image of Uncle Ho - the beloved leader of the nation.
Especially, the dome-shaped design creates a feeling of nostalgia and spaciousness for visitors. Post offices still keep antique mailboxes, telephone booths, and souvenirs such as stamps or old letters. Right in the heart of a magnificent Saigon, there is a such unique architecture that combines Europe and Asia.
The post office has classical European architecture style combined with Asian decoration. On the roof of the lobby, there is a round clock and a sign stating the year of construction: 1886 - 1891. Between the ground floor windows, there are rectangular decorative boxes. The original color of the building is pale earthy yellow, combined with white moldings and reliefs and green louvers. The color and architecture of the building harmonize with the surrounding landscape, forming a highlight in the urban space.
You can buy many beautiful and lovely souvenirs in this post office.
That is all thing about the Sai Gon center post office in my country. I hope that you will be happy with that.
