Saigon Opera House
One of the most must-see sites after sunset in Ho Chi Minh City is Saigon Opera House. The long-established 800-seat Opera House was built when Vietnam was the French colony. The ancient architecture with a gigantic gate, stunning crystal candelabrum, glossy granite floors, fussy stone-carved adornments and statues leaves great impressions for the audiences. The theater is used for a large range of performances such as operas, ballets, musical concerts or Vietnam traditional dances and plays. Take a pleasant seat and fully appreciate the brilliant arts.
Performances are extensively advertised on media and around the building. The address is at 7 Lam Son Square, District 1.
Vietnam is ranked the second for the largest exporting country of coffee bean in the world. That is the reason why coffee has been a vital part of Vietnamese culture, especially in Ho Chi Minh City. Although you can drink coffee anytime in a day, the best advice is to sip it at night. At early hours of a new day, when the noisy and busy city all day long becomes strangely peaceful, silent minutes with a cup of black coffee will help to balance your life or bring new thinking, for example.
