The Saigon Opera House is a wonderful architectural accomplishment to visit. It is a magnificent building with perfect acoustics. The staff were friendly & very helpful. We saw The A O Show .. it was a superb dancing performance with exceptional live traditional music.

Only saw this from the outside. It's in the middle of a very busy intersection and wasn't open while we were there. It is a walkable distance from a lot of hotels though and might be worth a look if you go when it's open.
