Ho Chi Minh City Opera House or City Theater was built in 1897 with the aim of being a place to entertain for French expeditionary soldiers or the popular entertainment venue of the high-class people. Built with neoclassical architectural style and was inspired by the designs of the Opera House in Paris, the Opera House is a charming and elegant work of art that stands out in the heart of the vibrant and bustle Sai Gon. As a long-standing project, undergoing many ups and downs of history, Opera House is considered as a must-see tourist destination of Ho Chi Minh City. With the beautiful architecture of white stone columns and curved arches, the Opera House will make you think that they are in romantic Paris, not this bustling Saigon.
