A breathtaking view created by Hanoi's tallest Xmas tree this year and other decorations at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
A 15-meter high pine tree, the tallest Christmas tree in the capital city this year, has sprung up at the Metropole Hotel, setting a festive mood not only for guests, but also for many disadvantaged children.
The tree will be up until December 28.
Since November 28, the Christmas tree, decorated with thousands of white lights, has been standing in the hotel's Le Balcon, offering a breathtaking view. It has also hosted Christmas celebrations for 50 children from Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam (HSCV) this year.
HSCV is dedicated to serving orphans, homeless children and other needy children in Vietnam.
To further support HSCV, the hotel has collaborated with the Art Vietnam Gallery and 11 local artists: Dang Anh Viet, Dinh Thi Tham Poong, Ngo Van Sac, Nguyen Hoang Nam, Nguyen Nghia Cuong, Nguyen Ngoc Lam, Nguyen Quang Thang, Nguyen The Hung, Nguyen Van Phuc, Pham Huy Thong, Tran Hoang Son, plus many donors, to create 11 fabulous Christmas trees displayed in the Metropole courtyard for public viewing.
Members of the public will get the chance to vote for their favorite Christmas tree, with an award then presented to the winning company and artist.
The children have written their wishes in red envelopes, to be hung on the Metropole's Christmas tree throughout the holiday season, and guests are invited to make donations in an envelope as well, to help make a child's wish come true.
Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi is located on 15 Ngo Quyen Street.
