We didn't go in, but our hotel for 2 nights was situated right beside it (Hilton and Sofitel). The building is absolutely beautiful and there are wonderful lights there that really make for wonder pictures. Historic and a sight.

Although a vestige of French colonilalism, the Vietnamese have taken it as their own, house Vietnamese orchestras and ballet. Reasonably priced seats and good acoustics.

Fronting a large open area at a major road intersection this place somehow grabs one's attention and for me seemed the centrepiece of the city. When the war ended in 1945 everyone else thought so too and 20,000 congregated here to celebrate. Ho stepped in and turned the crowd into an independence rally, that's when the trouble began.
