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.

Simple but catches your attention! A bare structure in the middle of the lake. Wonder if anyone has seen the sword!?

A sure thing
Jan 2021
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.

Lake in the Old Quarter
Jan 2020
I spent an hour walking around the lake in the center of the Old Quarter. In the mornings, many locals exercise near the lake.

Hoan Kiem Lake
Nov 2020 • Couples
Hoan Kiem is the walking place of Hanoi. During the day on a weekend it’s quite serene, when the sun goes down there are throngs of people enjoying the night culture of Vietnam. It’s just a fun place day or night and you are directly adjacent to the old quarter.
