Một nơi có kiến trúc cổ điển đáng để xem.
沒進去 要晚上看劇 所以外面走過路過
Siamo stati a vedere lo spettacolo A & O. Molto bello, l’evolversi del popolo vietnamita. Coinvolge molto e gli attori sono molto bravi. Merita andare a vederlo.
Lovely old building in the heart of Saigon. Certainly comes alive when you see a show there

걸어다녀서인지 힘들었지만 좋았습니다
Rất đẹp, du khách có thể đến đây tham quan và chụp ảnh làm kỷ niệm
Highly recommend to take tour hop on and hop off infront of this opera house . Really amazing!!
Wenn man die Chance hat, sich den Vietnamese Bamboo Circus in der Oper anzusehen, so sollte man sie sich nicht entgehen lassen!
One of the many exquisite colonial buildings in Ho Chi Minh City.
Went to the Opera House to watch the AO show. Stunning, funny and amazing performance! You shouldn’t miss out on this show when in Saigon. Recommend to come early, at least an hour before the show, as they take you to a tour inside the opera house. The lemongrass peach welcome drink was delicious too!

호치민 시티 투어에서 볼거리가 많지않기에 한번정도는 가족 연인끼리 볼만한거 같아요~~^^♡
The AO Show I saw last year was absolutely amazing!
I saw a Lune Production at this theatre. The staff were lovely and spoke very good English. There were nice balconies and gardens to sit in before the show. The crowd was able to file in and out very easily. The seats were comfortable and I had a good view frmom M16 on the floor. The bathrooms were clean and the building was immaculate in general. We had a great night!
