35/50.-Saigon, Opera House

The Saigon Opera House or Ho Chi Minh Municipal Theater is one of the city's landmarks. It sits at the end of Le Loi street.

The building was originally built by the French to host Opera shows. In 1955 it was transformed into the South Vietnam's Assembly House. After the nation's reunification the building remained unused. Not long ago it was refurbished. It currently hosts vietnamese theatre and traditional music shows.

In front of the theater there is a square where locals gather to spend the hot evenings.
