We took the " Xich Lo "To travel and find out the old quarter. This opera house still keeping the design from French time. So fancy classic eleagant. After 100 year it still kept the beautiful inside.

However we didn't go in it to have a look around as we had so much other things to do. But it was amazing from the outside.

The opera house is a lovely building but they have lollipoped it a bit with the yellow and white. They should in my opinion have left it white but they feel anything french should be yellow the colour of the colonial bureaucratic bulidings. It is a nice building however and it is amazing that they haven't twigged to tours as... More

Visitors will pass this 1911 building whilst travelling around the various attractions of Hanoi. An attractive, clean exterior, a copy of the Paris Opera House, it was the centre of cultural activity before WWII . Now fully restored to it's former elegance it holds audiences of 600 for ballet, opera etc. from all over the world.

Roads along the French quarter were wider and neatly intersected unlike the narrow lanes in the old quarter. The most prominent architecture structure in the French quarter was the Hanoi Opera House, built in 1901 and opened in 1911. The golden yellow colour or yellow colour in general is associated with wealth, prosperity and was usually use by the emperors... More

I wanted to buy a 200.000 Dg ticket. The woman in the ticket box told me "it doesn't exist" (but I knew it did..), then "there are... More

A copy of the Paris Opera House. It is next to the Hilton Hotel and close to expensive shops selling designer clothing. Also within walking distance to Hoan Kiem Lake.

Unique of the places we visited on our trip to Hanoi was the Opera House (Nha Hat Lon) and we had a truly great time here. The structure itself is highly remarkable because it is very large and sophisticated. The decorations here are also exceptional, and had a distinct influence of the French feeling. At dark, this place looks even... More

Wow it is an impressive building. It was not open when we were there and there was a play that we would have gone to however it started the day we left. We decided to go to the restaurant and dine there which was absolutely wonderful. The staff were over the top with the service, and the food exquisite! Yes... More
