Inside and out.. Saigon Central Post office..

Saigon Central Post Office.. : Bưu điện Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh) is a post office  in the downtown Ho Chi Minh City, near Saigon Notre Dame Basilica, the city's main church. The building was constructed when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the early 20th century. 

It has a Gothic architectural style. It was designed and constructed by the famous architect Gustave Eiffel in harmony with the surrounding area. Today, the building is a tourist attraction.
And what a tourist attraction it is... this was Sunday morning 9,30am! Buzzing with bods..
These floor tiles could tell a story or two I bet! Beautiful design and colors.. I'm sure by now you know I'm crazy about building floors!
And ceilings.. this oldie has been preserved so well! Aah.. my mind slipped up.. it was actually 10.20am.. Its good to always capture pictures with clocks! And proudly watching over all the activities.. Uncle Ho.. Father of the Nation..

The ceiling in detail..
And the walls.. such beautiful design and color..
The local time in Pretoria South Africa..
And the outside of it..its just opposite the Notre Dame Cathedral.. that's tomorrow's post.. come back tomorrow for an inside peek of it..
