Attractions near the Sofitel Legend Metropole
The bustling Hoan Kiem Lake
Hoan Kiem Lake, in the historic centre of Hanoi, is the physical, cultural and spiritual heart of the city. Walking around its perimeter is one of the best ways to observe modern Vietnamese life and to meet locals. The ancient legends surrounding Hoan Kiem Lake are still around today, and visitors are considered lucky if they spot one of the rare turtles surfacing from its depths.
The Lake plays a central role in the life of many locals, from early morning yoga and tai chi, to couples taking romantic walks at sunset and the beautiful light displays at night. Hoan Kiem Lake is surrounded by cultural and historical attractions, restaurants and shopping precincts, making it a popular resting stop.
Catch a show at Hanoi Opera House
Hanoi's magnificent Opera House was built in 1911 and these days it’s still one of the city’s most prominent landmarks. The front of this elegant building was inspired by the Palais Garnier Opera House in Paris and on the inside is a diverse roster of cultural performances, from traditional Vietnamese music and dance, to Western symphonies and musicals.
The Opera House hosts regular performances from major companies such as the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra and the National Ballet, as well as the country's most talented musicians and singers.
