NDO - Visiting to Hoa Lo Prison in central Hanoi can be an experience like no other as the historic site is set to open at night starting from July 24, as part of the capital city’s tourism promotion programme.

The initiative aims to arouse all the senses and emotions of visitors with a combination of sounds and light, which change as they walk through different rooms inside the prison-turned-museum.

Visitors will also be able to listen to audio about the prison structure and moving stories about the struggles of political prisoners during the tour, jointly organised by the site management and the travel agency Hanoitourist.

According to the management board, visitors are expected to feel a range of special emotions, from sympathy for prisoners in the gruesome conditions of a colonialist prison to respect for their resolute resilience and sacrifices for national independence.

The night tour will begin at 7pm on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
