Highlight Hanoi, Vietnam
Hanoi Opera House
Grand, neo-classical Hanoi Opera House was built by the French and modeled on the opulent Palais Garnier in Paris. Guided walking tours stop outside on August Revolution Square to unveil its history. Visit for an evening performance when the classical arches and wrought iron balconies are illuminated and the mesmerising atmosphere in the auditorium is reminiscent of the building’s heyday. As you join the patrons on the Italian marble floor, look up to see the chandeliers and French ceiling murals that greeted colonial officials and wealthy Vietnamese who flocked here at the turn of the 20th century. Tickets are available for everything from classical symphonies and dramatic opera to ballets and traditional Vietnamese folk music.
