Regrettable that a pair of youngsters ticket sellers at the entrance don't allow people to go inside to admire the marble main hall.

We walked away from Kiem Lake specifically to see the Opera House and take a few photos, but the whole building was surrounded by giant screens so we could't even see the building to take photos. Not sure if there was some event on that...More

We didnt actually go in, but this house, and the street ahead of it was packed on Christmas eve. The whole place was beautiful at night with people shopping, dancing, dressed up, with the Opera House on the background.

It is a great sight to see in the night when it gets lit beautifully, a majestic building besides the Hilton. The Pedicab tours in the evening halt here for a picture, do not miss the evening view.

Let me preface this review by stating that I prefer local experiences when traveling and while I will visit many of the major, better-known sites, I enjoy many of the lesser-known ones more that provide a unique cultural experience. The interior of the Hanoi Opera...More

We didn’t pay for a show, and you can’t go inside unless you have tickets apparently, but it was worth looking at. The museum is nearby, so get off the tourist bus here, and walk around the back to the museum, which is worth a...More

A great live show with plenty of action and story. The story of people from the country to the city people. Amazing display of human strength and dance.

Hi, You can google Hanoi Opera Tickets. Or, if you are staying at a major hotel ( Sofitel is the best ) the Opera House is literally twp blocks away and you can walk there to get tickets.

Hi Travelhappy, Personally, I think it is a good Itinerary! You are prepared to confine yourself to Hanoi and adjacent places for virtually your whole 6 days. I think that you will greatly enjoy a trip that is not rushed, and you will walk away from VN with a very good perception of the north! "Hanoi Kids" would be worth a try, but other posters who travel more than I do to the North, will give you further help! Go and Enjoy it! plover
