Recommended at almost all the list of places to visit in Hanoi. But it's still the operating opera so it's open only for shows. It's hard to get a photo from the outside as the building is right at the road side. What I recommend...More

Although we were not able to enter the building, just viewing from the outside is worth the visit. Truly a masterpiece of architecture from the French occupation of the area,

This is another building showing the influence of the French. It has a large area in front that doesn’t allow normal traffic across it, which makes it safer to photograph! It has been well maintained and the interior is very attractive. A wide range of...More

Down on a busy intersection opposite the Hanoi Stock Exchange in the French Quarter is Vietnam's largest opera house, the Hanoi Opera House. Modelled on the Palais Garnier in Paris, it was built by the ruling French Government and opened in 1911. To a passer-by,...More

The Village is a very nice show, excellent for those who do not speak Vietnamese, like me. Go and see it! The opera house is a piece of colonial architecture that deserves to be visited. If you put two good excuses t ogether you will...More

I read many reviews but one thing I missed is that this is more of a working venue than a tourist attraction. Go here to see opera and other events. Don't go just to see the building itself. There are no tours that we could...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.

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
