Hoan Kiem Lake (Hồ Hoàn Kiếm)
A Moment of Serenity in Chaotic Hanoi
Hoan Kiem Lake is an oasis of calm from the motorbike filled streets on Hanoi. On weekend evenings they close the streets, so locals and tourists are out walking and enjoying nature. Don't be surprised if college students approach you to practice their English. You can also see the locals tacticians tai chi in the mornings.
