“It was over”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

It had nothing but mud and sands. I did not see a beautiful lake as I read in the description. Very disappointing and boring, don't ever come to this place for a visit

“Beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The great thing about this place is that you almost can hear the traditional vietnamese music playing in the background, and picture the fishers throwing the nets into the lake.
Beautiful sights and relaxing environment in an exotic country, what else do you need?

“Nice to walk around”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

One afternoon we walked around the lake (6km). It is popular with walkers and joggers. There are swan paddle boats to take out on the lake if you wish. We also saw a few tired horses with buggies for tourists but we walked. A good walk if you have time.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

A few pine trees on an otherwise barren slope and a tired horse to ride. It's a few kilometres out of town on the way to Nha Trang. Best keep travelling to Nha Trang.

“Quiet”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

It's not as big as it used to be & all the romantic kitsch things have been taken away which was a bit of a shame as they were fun. Still you get to be among a few locals & away from the tourists & it's cheap entry, although it's better to take your own transport.
