Le Petit Prince, one of the most beloved children’s stories of all time, is coming to the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi next month.
Starting June 1, Hanoi’s storied old hotel is mounting a month-long exhibition, called le Petit Prince’s Journey, of the storied old children’s tale about a little boy fallen to Earth who encounters the strangeness of the adult world for the first time.
The exhibit includes scans of original manuscript pages produced by the book’s, author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery; selections of artistic photograhy by Vincent Nguyen of locations around the world traveled by Saint-Exupéry; and a rare color film of Saint-Exupéry in Canada in 1942, at work on Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince.)
As one stop in a larger tour of Sofitel hotels worldwide, the Metropole will open its exhibit with a ceremony on June 1, International Children’s Day, in Le Club Bar at 5p.m. All of the imagery associated with the exhibit will be displayed in Le Club Bar and L’Orangerie.
Sofitel organized the traveling exhibit as an opportunity to expose its work with the Saint-Exupéry Foundation, a group that promotes initiatives to support children in difficult environments.
For every family that books a stay at the hotel on the Magnifique Family package, the hotel is donating €2 per night to the Saint-Exupéry Foundation. The package includes 50% off a second room for children, complimentary breakfast for children, and late check-out (4 p.m.) for families.
The amenities associated with Le Petit Prince include a travel diary with a picture of the child on the first page and table mats at breakfast.
