The opera house is a grand old colonial theatre but the unexpected treat was a fabulous dance/folklore/acrobatics show by a vibrant, young energetic group called Teh Dar. A little expensive for Vietnam but a must see if you are in Saigon

Beautiful building. Able to book for performances, if available on the day. No tours available when performances aren't scheduled. Lots of construction around the area at present.

We saw a man with a jacket, many in shorts, but all with footwear and no g-strings. Unless you perform in a circus show.
