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

    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.

    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!

    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.
