When you wanted to go there you must be fully clad. My wife wearing shorts couldn't get there unfortunetly.

It was raining and a bit storm When I visited this pagoda .Tran Quoc was not open. But I looked around surrounding this area. The west lake as a background view of Tran Quoc's very beautiful, tiered pagoda as well. You could see the towers of the beautiful pagoda rising above the lake’s surface. Near to the road, Just walking... More

being refurbished and maintained it is easy to get to and worth a quick visit. We went just before closing so it wasn't very busy as many people didn't come in behind us. Made it very nice

The oldest pagoda in Hanoi at nearly 1,000 years old, and definitely worth a visit. It's an active pagoda, with lots of people present and praying. Make sure you wear longs or a longer skirt - shorts/short skirts are not allowed. Lovely setting on the peninsula, but we were pretty horrified at the state of the lake.

Before I entered to the temple, there was a guy talking to me loudly that I cannot go in because my skirt is too short. My skirt is not a short one so I can't see it is a short skirt at all. Then, a woman came to me almost immediately that she has skirt for me to rent so... More

Tranquil and relaxing! Enjoy the solitude and history of the pagoda while the waves of the lake and the sounds of the wind chimes fill the air.

From a distance, it's not difficult to see why the Tran Quoc pagoda is such an attraction. It's an elegant, photogenic structure that stands out on its premises, a leafy island (Golden Fish outlet) on West Lake connected to the mainland by a pedestrian-only causeway. On closer inspection, it's an eleven-storey, six-sided brick pagoda containing a buddha for each level... More

This is an active pagoda and temple and the oldest one in Hanoi - nearly 1,000 years old, though it's been restored over the years. You'll see lots of Buddhas, and probably some Vietnamese students of Buddhism there, too. It's quite a popular place for the locals to burn offerings and pray, and the setting is beautiful. If you're wearing... More

Beautiful temple with a great view of West Lake and Hanoi. Lots of charming places to eat or have a drink nearby, and a quiet place for a walk.
