Just a night stroll out and we found out it was a quiet place to relax and away from millions of motorbikes. Walking around the lake at night in this busy city is perfect place to end your days

a beautiful pagoda and a very tranquil surrounding. one of the oldest in Vietnam. located on the West Lake, it's not to be missed. no entrance fee to be paid. our guide says that during autumn, the area will be very beautiful. but still, it's beautiful even in hot summer.

Closed at lunch time - so don't go between 11.30 and 1. No entrance cost and close to the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum & museum, so do all of them in the same day.

If you want some calm and peace from the hustle-bustle of city life, visit this pagoda located on a small island near the southeastern shore of Hanoi's West Lake. On the grounds of Tran Quoc is a Bodhi tree taken as cutting of the original tree in Bodh Gaya, India.

One of the oldest pagodas in Hanoi. Beautifully located on the lake. Although it is very touristic, this temple is an important place of worship for the locals.

Quiet place at West Lake to visit and see the tombs of monks and to visit the temple. Take some time to sit and take in everything around you.

We visited in pagoda on a weekday. It was quite popular with locals. As it was located on the side of a lake, it was quite scenic. Well-maintained pagoda with lots of worshippers. It was worth a quick visit even if you have seen at a few pagodas. Be aware of scammers prior to crossing the bridge to the pagoda.... More

Important Buddhist site. Large temple complex and largest pagoda in Vietnam. Temple grounds are very active. I was there during the 3pm chanting and it was really great. The Bodhi tree grown from a clipping from the original in Bodh Gaya was amazing. Really a must-see for Buddhist and site-seers alike.

Tran Quoc pagoda is located on the East side of West Lake, and it is regarded as the most ancient pagoda in Hanoi with its history line of more than 1,500 years. The architecture of this Buddhist center is a subtle combination between the solemn and beautiful landscape on the peaceful and quiet ambiance of West Lake’s surface. You can... More
