Resembling the Opéra Palais Garnier, Hanoi Opera House, built in 10 years since 1911 by two French architects. The magnificent building became one of the top landmarks in Hanoi. The Opera House hosts cultural entertaining performances, bamboo...more

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.

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
A must-visit property with stunning lobby and sweeping staircase leading up to the private box seats. Frequent performances with tickets available to purchase via their website. Tours available for backstage experience.
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.
Yes you can buy the ticket online.
Please google for Hanoi Opera house, there was an online website with shows schedule.
There are some guidelines in TA that we need to abide. So cannit list down here.

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
