Another attraction in Hanoi opens Night Tour: Spectacular 3D show; tourists are excited because they have been waiting for many years

As a familiar tourist destination in Hanoi, the Night Tour's appearance in this place excites many tourists.

Currently, in addition to the usual form of welcoming visitors, many tourist destinations, including historical and cultural relics, have innovated by opening many other forms to serve diverse needs at the same time while bringing new experiences to visitors. What stands out the most is the form of "Night Tours". "Night tours" are tours of places at night with many activities completely different from sightseeing during the day.

In Hanoi's capital area alone, there are currently 3 destinations that have put the Night Tour into practice and received certain successes, including Hoa Lo Prison Relics, Thang Long Imperial Citadel and Vietnam Literature Museum. Recently, another location - equally famous, even considered one of the symbols of the Capital of a thousand years of civilization, also continued to launch a Night Tour. The location being mentioned is the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam.

What does the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam night tour include?

The full name of the night tour at the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam is "Night Experience Tour of the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam (Van Mieu Night Tour) - Essence of Taoism". Recently, the program tested its first session on Sunday evening, October 22. According to information on, when officially put into operation, expected in November this year, visitors can book tickets online for 199,000 VND/ticket. The relic site opens to welcome guests for night tours from 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Friday - Sunday evening.

So what special things await visitors when coming to the Night Tour at the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam? That is a question that many tourists ask and are wondering. At Hoa Lo Prison, there are performances by actors recreating famous events that have taken place; At Thang Long Imperial Citadel, there are royal dances right on archaeological vestiges, "encountering" guards and bowmen in ancient costumes and decoding games; Or at the Vietnam Literature Museum, the story is associated with the word "Heart" and the word "Talent", then at the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam, visitors will have a completely different experience.

Specifically, when night falls, the entire relic space will be transformed and put on a completely different outfit by the modern lighting and projection system. "The night experience tour will bring visitors an architectural relic and heritage space that is more impressive and sparkling than usual but still retains the profound and delicate features of the place that is considered a national school " first under the monarchy," a representative of the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam shared.

The entire area of the relic site will be divided into 5 areas with different names for the convenience of visitors. Includes: Initiation Area; Success Area; Doctor's Beer Garden, Dai Thanh area; and Thai Hoc area.

The most special highlight of the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam night tour will be in the last area, the Thai Hoc yard. Here, the 3D Mapping Shows "Essence of Taoism", inspired by the specific elements at the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam associated with Vietnamese ethics throughout the centuries.

It is known that 3D Mapping presentation technology is one of the most modern modelling technologies today. This technology allows for the simulation of 3D images of the same size as real products, clearly showing the shape and theme of the product. Under the 3D effect and the combination of sound and lighting systems, the shapes will appear in an extremely vivid 3-dimensional space, creating many emotions for viewers.

Describing the "last leg" of the Temple of Literature - Quoc Tu Giam Night Tour, the representative of the relic wrote on the official website: "This is the final emotional touchpoint of the experience program, which is also the content that brings the most sublime feeling. The entire facade of Tien Duong house on Thai Hoc yard will turn into a giant screen to help visitors discover the most quintessential values in Vietnamese mysticism. Show mapping is also a panorama connecting all the experience items visitors have enjoyed from the main gate to the end of Bai Duong yard. All blend to create a party of light, sound and emotions".

Mr. Phung Quang Thang - Vice President of the Vietnam Travel Association - said that applying 3D Mapping projection on the heritage architecture will attract tourists and convey some good content, but visitors need to be guided through experiential travel so they understand the story.
