    Ideal for an evening hangout, along the lakeside with busy shopping experience and buzzing activities!

    The hike to the temple at the top is quite easy. Good for a quick getaway as the air is refreshing. However nothing much special here so if you want to be properly touristy, maybe this is not your best choice.

    Our tour company arranged for us to rent bikes to ride around the 17 km perimeter of West Lake. It was a fun experience, and there are a few temples and statues to stop and see along the way. Warning: you are on regular traffic rounds with all kinds of vehicles. Because of this, the experience was more dangerous than I expected. But we had decent bikes with good gear shifting and we enjoyed the afternoon.

    There is no shrimp crab or any large shark, despite you guys have billboards of it. Better purchase them for returning value

    This was a nice open park facing Sword Lake. It not your typical green park but completely tiled with trees around the edges. The tiles make it suitable for a number of different activities.

    The statue stands out all in black but not much in the way of a description nearby. I looked him up online and found out he was the 6th King of Vietnam.

    Driving the weekend the park was filled with stages setup up for the 2022 ASEAN Police Band Concert. During my morning walk those stages had since been removed and the park was once more wide open and a much nicer stop for a few minutes.

    We came here to find a certain geocache, and enjoyed strolling through the calm, fresh greenness. This is where many Hanoi folk come to do the same - exercise groups, runners, families. A few animals in small enclosures. Pretty ponds and some nice statues. We were enjoying good weather walking around this part of HaNoi, but wished there were more entrances as we had to go out of our way to get inside.

    We were disappointed with West Lake and went to the Pagoda and then headed over the road and started off round Truc Bach Lake, lots of restaurants on the side streets but not many overlooking the lake. We found some small tables and chairs in the shade where some locals were sitting, so we joined them and an old lady came and asked us waht we would like to drink, so we ordered some beers. I asked for a Banh mi but she said that she didn't do food but would ask someone else. A waitress turned up, I know not from where and she took my order. Shortly she returned and served us with the best Banh mi that I tasted in Vietnam.
    The lake itself is nothing to write home about!

    I saw the zoo -- or what I thought was a huge park -- from the 65th floor of the Lotte Centre's Sky Walk. A short 5 mins walk later, I found myself outside what looked like a kid's carnival of sorts. The sun was out and the views looked good so I paid the ticket and in I went.

    It was a Friday afternoon and there weren't many people. It didn't take very long to realize that it was a zoo. The animals did not look particularly well taken care of and I didn't really notice any staff apart from those manning the few stalls that were open and selling products. The toilet situation was also surprising and in a bad way -- for the guys, 3 of the 4 urinals did not have a pipe attached underneath so you are highly likely to splash pee on your own shoes if you weren't paying attention.

    No matter how nice the day was for photo taking, admittedly I left this place feeling heavy-hearted and not just a little disappointed.

    When we crossed it many times when in Hanoi... It was unfortunately always brown. Big River... No great deal about it... 750 plus miles long. Lots of ships in it.

    Spent an hour here and did a leisurely lap of the lake. It really was lovely to be somewhere which fell totally local with families enjoying themselves and an impressive number of young and old exercising around the park. Really enjoyed it and felt completely different to the bustle you have only 20 minutes walk north.

    I live near this lake and often I do running around the lake almost every morning. Personally I dare to say that Linh dam lake is the most beatifull one in Hanoi.

    This hotel is a complete con. On arrival there was no one on reception, despite us giving a time of arrival. The family running the hotel were in residence, in front of the TV in the lobby, and the children were riding their bikes around the lobby.
    This is allegedly a 4 star hotel but it would not qualify for 1 star. It has none of the facilities listed on Tripadvisor, Agoda or Booking.com. The staff have no idea how to run a hotel. The rooms were dirty, lamps and taps were broken and the rooms were not serviced, despite us being the only guests. We were woken up at 7.15 to be given coffee sachets as they hadn't put them in the room.
    They were unable to provide any breakfast apart from instant noodles, instant coffee and fried eggs. They told us they had no tea or Vietnamese coffee, no fruit and no bread. Drilling started on the roof at 8.30am and rubble was transported in the lift, so that was why it was filthy.
    We paid the highest rate for this hotel and it was appalling. We left after 1 day. Additionally, they e mailed us a week before to ask for a cash payment, for the total amount, into a random bank account. They then wanted us to pay in cash on arrival, despite it being 4 star and we expected to pay on Visa. We made them sort out their Visa machine.
    Quan Lan is a poor destination, as the beaches are dirty, with lots of rubbish at the back of the beaches. The tourism authorities describe them as pristine, but they are not! Rubbish is piled up all over the island. The local tourism authorities should address this urgently as it is not typical of the rest of Vietnam. Food is very difficult to find in Minh Chau. The best thing about this hotel was the toilet paper and the electric taxi to the port, to escape!
    Having travelled extensively, we can be sympathetic to local conditions and respect that people are just trying to earn a living, but this is simply a ripoff. This hotel should be delisted immediately and I will be writing to Tripadvisor, Agoda and Booking.com. Translate all reviews about this hotel and Quan Lan and believe all the bad ones. It is shocking and shameful, when so many places in Vietnam are amazing. Do not waste your time and money!

    The park is more popular after competition of artificial grass field supported by Japan.
    This place is clean and suitable for family with children. All child enjoys running on grass field and plays some safe outdoor games for free.
    The entrance price is just 0.2us per person , extremely low for whole weekend day.
    Cheers
