“Enjoyable place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2010

After read some article about the biggest lake in this city, we felt quite curious about its beauty then we decided to visit here. It is really big lake with a large view to sun rise’s direction but I just could take a look just only one side of it. Also, people can do and enjoy many type of activities over here – eating, sightseeing, pedicab water cycling.

“Feel the fresh air”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2010

It is ideal place to take a rest walk after a long tired day. It is the biggest lake in hanoi and got a big amount number of traveler visit here and here i am. I have been here with my wife in the afternoon time before the sunset. It was so beautiful with the big and nice view head to the West. We could feel the cool and fresh air in here.

“Love lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2010

The hotel's receptionist said with me its calling "love lake". It had a lot of temple and pagoda which well design and ancient. You also can rent the small boat to go around, 3$/ hour. Come and see the wind of lake.
