Lying to the southeast of Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi’s French Quarter romances guests with grand boulevards and elegant French colonial buildings. These include, to name a few, the stately Opera House based on the neo-Baroque Opera de Paris – complete with gray slate tiles imported from France and the National Museum of Vietnamese History.
The French Quarter is perhaps the most resplendent part of this animated, vibrant and bustling city. Architects blessed the area with wide Parisian boulevards, leafy green parks and superb examples of French Colonial architecture.
