The Saigon Opera House, also known as the Municipal Theater of Ho Chi Minh City, is one of the top venues in Vietnam for opera and classical music. It is only open to the public for performances, but it is worth visiting any time as great photo opportunities await. The building is a fine example of French colonial architecture and is located on a wide, tree-lined boulevard which feels very European.
Currently, the most famous performance you can see at the Opera House is the A O Show, which can be described as a blend of Cirque du Soleil and traditional Vietnamese elements. Tickets for the A O Show can be bought at the Opera House, online, at travel agents, or at any Silverland hotel.
Comfort in the chaos
My partner and I enjoyed our stay at the Grand Silverland. It makes for a comfortable home base for tours in the area. The Breakfast is excellent, and the afternoon tea is a nice addition. The rooftop pool is a nice place for a break from the crazy streets below. Our room was quiet and comfortable. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The location is central for easy walking to many interesting sights.
My husband and I stayed at the Grand Silverland Hotel and Spa for 4 nights. We absolutely loved our stay. On arrival we were given a room upgrade to an executive room which was fabulous. The bathroom was very large and the room was just lovely. All the staff were so attentive and the free afternoon tea was an added bonus. Position was great. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if returning to HCMC.
