Join the local residents in Hanoi who wlaked, jogged or strolled around Hoan Kiem Lake.
Best time is in the early morning or evening. But you can do it anytime of the day.
Pleasant way of enjoying the lake and people watching who are exercising or cruising around the lakes on their motorcycles.
When tired, sit on the many benches and watch the Hanoi world goes round and round.
In the summer, it can be very hot and humid. So sweating it out will cool you down.
Give you a real insight into Northern Villages scenery, Biking for one day out of Hanoi would be lovely. Summer will be good for Ha Tay ( with visit Tay Phuong pagoda ) and winter for Bac Ninh province ( to see silkworms, mulberry fields & But Thap Pagoda ).
Lenin Park has already been described as a place to watch people doing Tai Chi early in the morning. However, there's also sport in the evening. If you enter the park from its south side (opposite Bach Khoa University), and walk to the right, you'll soon come across a paved circle on which people gather in the evening to enjoy dancing classes. I came there with some friends of mine and we were immediately joining the group and having fun! There's even an instructor, in case you lack the skills to do a proper waltz...
Equipment: no equipment needed - only curiosity

If you're a serious biker like my hubby, chances are, you would have asked if it is possible to tour Vietnam by bike. The answer is yes! And the best bike to do it over here is the classic Russian Minsk. There are some minsk bike clubs over here and they have gatherings where tales of adventures are swapped . So, if you're keen to do this, I suggest you find out more by clicking on this site :
The Minsk Club
Touring Vietnam is not without risks, the terrain is probably unfamiliar to you and the road sucks compared to first world countries. It's better to do it with a guide and with insurance, of course. Ask the club for recommendations.
Equipment: Better to bring your own full-face helmet here, you wouldn't want to wear someone else's stinky helmet, right??
Kings' Island has two 18s ~ the Lakeside and Mountain View courses with the first 18 opened in early-1993 and the later in mid-2004... Designed by Bob McFarland, the Lakside course plays to 6,454 yds and spans two tree-covered islands and a major peninsula projecting into the center of Dong Mo Reservoir... The newer Mountain View course was designed by Peter Rogers and play to 7,100 yds...
The Lakeside course has a number of hidden greens and at least 12 forced carries over water and swampy gorges. It is a challenging course on its own... As i have only played the Lakeside course, I do not have any comments on the Mountain View course...
