About
A rare breed of turtle enjoys this popular lake almost as much as countless locals and tourists. Hoan Kiem Lake is a dynamic daily tableau, from morning walks amid locals doing exercises on the shore, to young couples water-gazing on park benches, to the multiple shopping and sight-seeing opportunities in the vicinity. Centrally located in the city, Hoan Kiem Lake serves as a massive home base, and provides endless people-watching and recreational opportunities on the edge of the Old Quarter.

호수를 중심으로 역사가 깊은 절과 건물들이 있습니다. 일요일에는 호수를 주변으로 운동하는 사람도 많습니다. 지금은 코로나로 인하여 많은 방문이 어렵습니다. 그래도 옛날 이 지역에 왕성했던 문화를 느낄 수 있습니다.

There are many historical temples and buildings around the lake. On Sundays, many people exercise around the lake. Many visits are difficult now due to the corona virus. Still, you can feel the culture that flourished in this area in the past.

A sure thing

Definitely a place to visit during a stay in Hanoi. The very best time to enjoy the heart and soul of the people of Hanoi is the weekend when traffic is re-routed away from the Lake. Families fill the landscape. foreigners who speak English may be approached by young people to practice their English skills. Encouraging them in their endeavor rewards both the visitor and the seeker.

Nice lake with a long red bridge and giant turtles.
Feb 2020
I will be honest, its a nice lake with a long red bridge, good for taking pictures.
Other than that there is nothing much. There are giant turtles on exhibit.
We did not take any tour guide for this, we just purchased the ticket at the counter and walked around. Ticket price is 30.000VND.
