E33***34This 19th Century post office takes one back in time. Still a functioning post office, a large photo of Ho Chi Minh stares down at all who enter. We bought a few post cards at the gift shop to the right to send to relatives. Worth a 10-15 minute visit.

kim_travelsReally informative guide (his name was Cung). Watch out for his surprise quiz. Luckily we managed to escape without any mosquito bites. I am 5ft 4 so thought that I would have to crawl using my hands and knees but I was able to go through the tunnels by squatting down.

Ho Chi Minh City
Commonly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is a city in South Vietnam, eponymous for the pivotal role it played in the great Vietnam War. It is also widely known for the French colonial landmarks, which include the Notre-Dame cathedral. The cathedral is made of materials entirely imported from France. There is a 19th century Central Post Office that still stands tall, and the city is bustling with food streets around the Ben Thanh market. Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam at its most dizzying avatar.

Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon: say a prayer Just like Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon is dubbed “the red church” because of it being built with red stones. Compared to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris it is not adorned with so many intricate sculptures, but it has an extra charm. If you are here during mass, watch how the pious come and sing hymns. If you are lucky you may even walk into a wedding at the church. Hear how the hymns are sung and partake in the new couple’s joy. 13423

Ho Chi Minh City Travel Tips

About Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City was formerly known as Saigon. It is one of Vietnam's liveliest cities and a hub for commerce and culture. This place has all kinds of classically elegant French buildings that were left behind from the colonial period. You will feel almost as if you are in Paris. Apart from the sightseeing tours of places like the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon, the Ho Chi Minh City City Hall and the Municipal Theatre, you can witness more grand French-style architecture off the beaten path by visiting the Central Post Office and mail a post card. At the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum you can learn about Vietnam's more recent history, take a boat trip along the Mekong River, or enjoy a cup of Vietnamese coffee in an old French-style café. Phạm Ngũ Lão Street is very quiet and peaceful during daylight hours. Once night falls, however, this place comes alive. Not only an excellent place to enjoy the city's nightlife, it is also a favorite place for backpackers to stay.
