    The main lake located centrally in Hanoi. Can see that in the old times, business activities are located around the lake. Scenic and not difficult to walk around the lake. Along the journey, we spotted some historical architecture and monuments as well. You can find restaurants and street food scattered around the lake. During the weekends, the road surrounding the lake will be closed for people to walk easy. I saw many locals exercising and jogging around the lake as well.

    We rented bicycles and explored the scenic West Lake (Ho Tay). The fresh air and serene atmosphere were perfect for a romantic picnic. We found a quiet spot by the lake and enjoyed delicious street food while taking in the beautiful scenery.

    Smaller lake neighbouring with West lake. Surrounded with restaurants, coffee shops. We had a lunch in near by vegan restaurant. We enjoyed relatively low cold unusual for this time temperature around twenty degrees and walked to old quarter along parks and main governmental square. Water is not clean, sometime too much dirt in. Enjoy a lot of place near by

    I live near this lake and often I do running around the lake almost every morning. Personally I dare to say that Linh dam lake is the most beatifull one in Hanoi.

    Spent an hour here and did a leisurely lap of the lake. It really was lovely to be somewhere which fell totally local with families enjoying themselves and an impressive number of young and old exercising around the park. Really enjoyed it and felt completely different to the bustle you have only 20 minutes walk north.

    When we crossed it many times when in Hanoi... It was unfortunately always brown. Big River... No great deal about it... 750 plus miles long. Lots of ships in it.
