The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is  a must see. Huh?  Post Office?  Yesiree!  Mainly because of its Gothic architectural design care of the famous architect Gustave Eiffel…yes the one responsible for the Eiffel Tower in France, the steel structure inside the Statue of Liberty of the United States (this was a gift from France) and the San Sebastian Church in the Philippines.

A closer look at the Post Office reveals beautiful floor tiles and a ceiling remindful of the Musee d’Orsay in Paris.

Beautiful floor tiles.

Post Office's ceiling. Similar to the one at Musee d' Orsay

Not only does this building function as a post office still but it also serves as a tourist destination. That's what I call multi-tasking =)

Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Eiffel.
