At any time of day or evening you'll find a lot of citizens relaxing around the lake with impromptu tai chi, games, dancing, and singing. The lakeside cafe bars are both very good and during our stay we ended most of our evenings with a walk around the lake. It's also a useful landmark in terms of orientating yourself when out exploring the city on foot

Such a pleasant walk around the lake. Well made paths and some lovely restaurants on the edge of the lake near the main square.

Lovely walk round the lake - especially nice when local families are out and the roads are closed to traffic. The little temple is very pretty and worth a visit. The building looks stunning when lit up at night. There were lots of young people wanting to practice their English - one young boy was undertaking a survey and managed to interview several members of our group - he and his friends were polite, friendly and interested in visitors. Lovely people in Hanoi!

I walked around the lake after i had dinner and had Vietnames coffee. This was on a Sunday when everyone is out and wanted to walk there. we are talking about a big crowd. This is not your typical nice walk but its almost touristy place where i would say thousand of people are walking around that place.

They had a nice exhibit in the middle of the lake, perfect place to walk around specifically on the weekends when the police closes the vehicle traffic. Here, you can see street performers, locals playing a game closely related to "Hacky Sack" and people exercising. This was definitely my go-to place on the weekends in Hanoi.
