The Hanoi Opera House looks very imposing & solid from the outside. Very nice to have pictures taken with the Opera house as the background. It actually isn't very big. It is perfect to hold intimate shows.

Hanoi Opera House is the beautiful french colonial architecture building located in the old Quarters of Hanoi. To go inside you will have to pay or come for a concert or other performance.

The Hanoi Opera House is a must-see in the city. Located in a high-end area, close to the Vietnamese Museum of History, it's a piece of french colonial architecture and the interior of the theater has been remodeled yet preserving the charming old elements of decoration.

it is one of the France-architecture building in Hanoi. It has a classic beauty. But since they painted it recently, the color is changed a little bit. It partially ruined its original charm. Anyway, it is still one of must-go place in Hanoi.

Plan to see this together with a visit to Trang Tien Plaza ( high-end mall), a snack at La Terrasse of Sofitel Metropole Hotel, and a visit to the National Museum of Vietnamese History. This is just on one side of the Hoan Kiem Lake.
