Hoan Kiem Lake Reviews & Ratings

  • I love Hoàn Kiếm Lake... Sometimes it does not smell like it should but life around the lake is busy and hectic... colourful and egg coffee nearby... it's the most famous hub in Hanoi. I am a little puzzled about the tower they talk about though.

  • For me, this is the best and the most beautiful lake across the city of Hanoi. I always see that the lake is abandoned or not foreigners-friendly. But this lake shows us that this though is not all true. This lake is very tidy and neat. It has a lot of beautiful flowers surrounding that makes this place so very beautiful. Then, it has the chairs that bring the foreigners very happy to hang out here. Moreover, the pedestrian is very good - even though still has the motorcycle parking. But, it is better that the other pedestrians. Another thing is this lake is located in the busiest region in the city. So, when you spend time here, you can do a lot of things. Including visiting the temple in the middle of the lake. So, thank you

  • If you’re heading to Old Quarter area - make sure to pass by this place. I mean, it’s great to see this place and take some photos and that’s pretty much it. Perhaps you want to read the story behind it might be more interesting while having a walk. Otherwise, just have a walk and snap photos.

  • Old quarter streets

  • Love the vibes of this place... it’s so lively and is filled on weekends... has several events being held around the square.
