This post office in the old town of Semarang looks special compared to common post offices in Indonesia. In front of this building, there is usually heavy traffic. There are Instagrammable cafes and buildings around.

It is one of the oldest building in Semarang that was still functional; however since postal service is not commonly needed again, I'm not sure whether you could do more than sightseeing.

This is one of the old building in Semaruang. It was built during Dutch occupation. As post mail service is not much used, this is now used for payment of pension fund, package delivery and to transfer and receive money.
