Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi Reviews

  • One of my favorite spots in Hanoi. Walking around the lake is really nice and relaxing. You may have the chance to see some women dancing. You can sit down and observe the Vietnamese around here. Other than the pagoda area, the lake is not as crowded as you may imagine.

  • Lovely place Beautiful place to spend time in the evenings while the lights of the temple and bridge is on. Just can spend hours there viewing the lake There are few benches and lovely flowers around and the locals practicing dance and sports there During Friday Saturday and Sunday there is a night market surrounding the lake where we can find awesome Souvenirs The roads are wide and the vehicles traffic will be stopped in the market area

  • Really nice lake to just walk around and gather some thoughts with music playing in the morning. You'll see plenty of locals doing exercise and random things just sitting, selling, poaching and today I saw some dancing stuff going on! If you like to run then it's a good circuit for you to use! There is also a temple along the river you have to like 30k to get in 15k if a student! Wanted to go in but decided to save money.

  • Great place to unwind during the weekend 👍. Very vibrant part of hanoi. There are many cafes and souvenir stalls surrounding the lake. At the heart of the lake, there is a temple by a red bridge. The temple & red bridge seem iconic as they are featured in many magnets sold in touristy places in hanoi. Hop into any cafe e.g. highlands cafe / helio cafe & have a nice cuppa to chill. At a centre square, many locals gather to play traditional games e.g. batu seremban, sepak takraw, etc. There are also performances by locals who want to showcase their singing talent. A must-visit in hanoi!

  • A beautiful and scenery lake in the heart of capital Hanoi old quarters. Locals and tourists can be found along the lake. Day time and night time will give different view from the lake. Do spare some time at this spot!
