The water is green, many dead fish and trash floating around. Sure was nice before all the construction going on

I just came here a few days ago. The lake is much smaller than others like Tuyen Lam, Xuan Huong, Suoi Vang,... There's nothing interesting here. I vas very disappointed when i got here and i'm like 'omg, is this really Lake of Sighs'.

I do not what happened but it is not a lake anymore. The whole main area is fulled with dirt and red soil, very dirty. The service is poor also, no direction, no staff. There are better lakes in the city like Tuyen Lam lake and Xuan Huong lake, so I recommend other places, don't waste your valued time here

It had nothing but mud and sands. I did not see a beautiful lake as I read in the description. Very disappointing and boring, don't ever come to this place for a visit

The great thing about this place is that you almost can hear the traditional vietnamese music playing in the background, and picture the fishers throwing the nets into the lake. Beautiful sights and relaxing environment in an exotic country, what else do you need?

One afternoon we walked around the lake (6km). It is popular with walkers and joggers. There are swan paddle boats to take out on the lake if you wish. We also saw a few tired horses with buggies for tourists but we walked. A good walk if you have time.

A few pine trees on an otherwise barren slope and a tired horse to ride. It's a few kilometres out of town on the way to Nha Trang. Best keep travelling to Nha Trang.

It's not as big as it used to be & all the romantic kitsch things have been taken away which was a bit of a shame as they were fun. Still you get to be among a few locals & away from the tourists & it's cheap entry, although it's better to take your own transport.

We cycled here in the late afternoon (approx 40min cycle on our borrowed bikes!) and was a nice little walk around the lake. Nothing amazing.
