With its value, if you are near West Lake, you should have a look, pray for peace in your heart. Also, after that, you can buy a tour ticket around West Lake or continue to walk and visit Tran Quoc Pagoda near Quan Thanh temple

Nice entry gate. Nice benches. Harassed by very rude hawkers. We got there at 4 and got to watch some training with swords... Some type of martial art. If you've seen other pagodas though...
