Voted as the most beautiful opera house of Southeast Asia, this Opera House tells a fascinating tale of colonialism and its glorious time.

Nice architecture. Busy roads so it takes a bit to navigate your way over to this building. There always seems to be wedding photos taking place on the steps.

Located near Old Quarters, this is very impressive and well maintained. Very near to Hilton Hanoi Opera, you can also visit old quarters. It was erected by French around 1910.

What a beautiful building. Right in the centre of town, it is most beautiful at night time. We got a free tour throughout and some history from one of the staff there.
