  • Life in Vietnam is told in witty and acrobatic way using bamboo sticks. Worth a visit

  • Could give me the Opera House located in the heart of the city, considered reasons of time unfortunately only from the outside. Very nice building!

  • We could visit the opera through a show "to oshow", beautiful representation which gives a good overview of culture past, present and future of the Viet Nam.

  • Love the architecture and love the A O Show even more. Get the package that they offer and you won't feel that the tickets are all that expensive. The show will leave you going WOW!
  • Nice place to see A O Show. It's a traditional show of Vietnam. The ticket is quite expensive: 500 000VND/pax but I think it's worth!
  • An exquisite example of colonial French Architecture. The Saigon Opera House is home to an exciting range of international and Vietnamese cultural events. A must see location for any intrepid traveler to HCMC.
  • Good view place which looks to Le Loi street, one of the most beautiful street in Sai Gon. This opera house is closed to Metro railway station
  • The hall is beautiful and small enough to get the best sound effect. Very satisfied joining a lovely concert here xD
