Lotte Observation Deck (Hanoi) – Southeast Asia’s 1st Sky Walk

Lotte Observation Deck (Hanoi) – Southeast Asia’s 1st Sky Walk

January 24, 2018



Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, lies on the right bank of the Red River. It was the most important political centre of Vietnam from 1010 to 1802 before being overtaken by Huế, the imperial capital of Vietnam during the Nguyễn Dynasty (1802–1945). Hanoi was conquered by the French in 1873, which explains why the Old Quarter is filled with broad, perpendicular tree-lined avenues of opera, churches, public buildings, and luxury villas. For the best view of Hanoi, head to the Lotte Observation Deck.





Located on the 65th floor, you will notice the dynamism of Hanoi at one glance. We were amazed by the contrast of the old and modern architecture from the 360-degree view of Hanoi at an uninterrupted vantage point. Two high speed elevators take visitors from B1 to the 65th floor in under a minute. Besides offering panoramic views of the city, the Lotte Observation Deck is divided into four sections – Attraction Zone, Welcome Zone, Experience Zone, and Romantic Zone – and these different zones feature The Skywalk, Bamboo Road, the Welcome Theatre, Photo Zone, the View Terrace, and the Sky Gallery.

We recommend visiting the Lotte Observation Deck in the late afternoon and staying past the golden hour. There is a café where you can grab an aromatic coffee, and just sit at the skywalk platform while admiring the spectacular view. However, this is not for the faint-hearted because you have to remove your shoes and walk across the glass floor to get the “first-class seats”.

There is a hotel, a variety of restaurants, and a department store below the Lotte Observation Deck. Although it is not very near Hanoi’s Old Quarter, the views from the observation deck are worth checking out.
