The Hanoi Opera House is one of Hanoi’s most iconic architectural landmarks.

Construction commenced in 1901 and concluded in 1911. Today, the Hanoi Opera House is a must-visit attraction in Hanoi.

In 2017, the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism introduced daytime tours to the Hanoi Opera House, revolutionizing the city’s tourist offerings.
