The Opera House is beautiful from the outside and even better inside. We went here during the day to look at the external architecture and back in the evening to watch "The Mist", a stunning modern production about Vietnamese country life. After the show we walked round to look at this amazing building again and to me it looks even... More

Wish it had been open for us to tour. It is a lovely old building with lots of charm in a beautiful area of the city.

Nice colonial architecture in the most fashionable avenue of HCMV next to major 5 stars hotels. No access to the building unless you buy a ticket for a show

We visited this classic structure while on our walk about tour. Fantastic architecture. Did not have the opportunity to go inside and see the main theater.

We had a chance to see around some of the building before the AO show started. Well worth a visit for the building and... More

Pros: a nice icon of the city A visit inside provides a great view of the past A nice shot from the outside because of the big open space in front of the building Cons: construction was everywhere when we walked around, closing off a portion of the street and making us walk a whole block around Unless you're seeing...
