After "Lacquer & More" Shop on Xuan Dieu street - Tay Ho District - Hanoi City, Thanh Chuong Viet Palace is the 2nd place that really attracts me during the time I was in Hanoi with the amazing paintings of this famous artist Thanh Chuong. His paintings are much influenced by Picasso but every special in a way how he can integrate traditional, real Vietnamese culture into his paintings with different contrasts of colors which brings audiences a special new taste of art between old and modern style.

The place brings tourists to the old time of Vietnam with a very natural way of the architecture and layout. It is really valuable and I wish the government of Vietnam together with the owner can keep this valuable asset for their country which people rarely find now a days in Vietnam.

The place is about 35km away from central Hanoi, 30km away from "Lacquer & More" shop, nice road and really worth visiting.

Fantastic collection of artifacts, houses and art work! We were impressed by the efforts to put things together so tastefully. Well worth the one hour ride from Hanoi city.

Though it's quite far from Hanoi center, the place is absolutely stunning. Mr. Thanh Chuong has paid attention to every small details inside the palace for us to understand about Vietnamese culture and tradition.

I was reminded of my childhood and impressed by peaceful atmosphere, fresh air and sounds of nature u can no longer in Hanoi's hustle and bustle. Also a great place to take photographs as lighting and setting is unique and gorgeous

But it's better if you can go here with a Vietnamese so he/she can explain the meaning of statues, symbols and so on. There is a guide book provided in both English and Vietnamese but it is of little help if u want to understand anything in depth

Only saw the Opera House from the outside. Excellent example of colonial architecture. Worth visiting.

A nice little get away from Hanoi, worth a trip and not too long for a little stroll. There are enough of things that worth a visit. The drive from Hanoi is not bad either.
