Dong Khoi Street is the fine shopping and tourist street. It is here you find up-scale silk tailors, artifacts shops, art galleries and a handful of boring tourist restaurants. Prices are general higher here, but the quality can also be excellent. There is also a shopping center and a bookshop along the street and it is also here you will find Saigon Opera House. Like many other French designed buildings in Vietnam the design for the opera house was inspired from a famous building back in France, in this case the Petit Palais in Paris. Next to the opera house, around the corner, stands the towering Caravelle hotel, which has a magnificent view over Ho Chi Minh City from their rooftop bar, Saigon Saigon Bar.
