The lake a is an amazing place to check out on the weekend. They close off the roads and people are out and about enjoying music, food and scenery. Sit and have a coffee during the day and eat, drink through the night. There are often performances and various music going on.
The most visited by any tourist in Hanoi..... Also called turtle Lake.... Turtle died couple years back.... Evening ang morning walk is pleasant.... For anyone likes noise.. Than make it here on the weekends... Where cars and vehicles are prohibited and lots of street dancers, vendors, play groups, music.....
