“The largest lake with a beautiful pagoda”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

The largest lake in hanoi with lots of people walking, exercising or just spending time. Go and visit the Pagoda that is around 1000 years old. Nice exemple of pagoda and temple and lovely walk. Walk around the tree offered by Indien president in the late 50's and get lucky in the casino as per our guide!!!!!

“Hay To”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Excellent views- the temple was very interesting. It is quite a long walk around the eastern part of the lake, and the WC on the southern side was not very clean.

“Apartment view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

nice lake to have a stroll around, a lot of better restaurants and bars are located around the lake.
It is a expat filled area making it feel fairly western/European.
