Such a calm place in middles of Hanoi. It's located right behind the presidential palaces - only 2k/person. Could be a camping place or a spontaneous spot in your list-to visit. After all the bustling & crowded - crazy traffic - come and visit this...More

Don’t bother going. The park is nothing special and they have beautiful peacocks kept in small cages who are clearly distressed.

The gardens were OK, but they keep monkeys and birds in cages. They were very miserable.. I do not support this.

I love this little park but not really a garden, let alone a botanical garden. The price is 2,000 VND but that's roughly a dime! haha Not exactly an admissions price. Lots of kids playing soccer and some swings and things in one section for...More

It’s a nice area to escape the bustle of the Old Quarter and soak up some greenery and sun. While it was pleasant, I wouldn’t say it’s something that one must go and visit if they come to Hanoi.

It costs 2000 Vnd to enter, which is the equivalent of 3.5pence in UK currency. There are lakes,trees, kiddies play parks, peacocks and people having picnics and exercising. There are cafes where you can enjoy an ice cold drink fresh from a coconut and shady...More

Monkeys kept in barren cage with no stimulation. They look so sad, one was staring out of the bars of his cage with such a sad look. Why keep them there? So pointless! Peacocks cage was equally depressing.

Open air with many trees and a big lake, a nice quiet place inside the busy streets of Hanoi, but there are animals kept in very small barren enclosures. Not much else to see there

Dogs would have to be on a lead, I don't think there would be much of an issue though. Most dog owners walk the west lake but again, your dog would have to be on a lead. I haven't seen any area's in Hanoi where dogs can have... More
