    Ho An Kiem Lake

    This lake is in the centre of the city and it attracts many people every day. There is a coffee shop where you can sit on the edge of the lake and watch the world go by.

    Pagoda in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake

    You get to the Ben Ngo Son Pagoda by crossing a red bridge. It isn't too big, but had a couple rooms for prayer and another that told the tale of a giant turtle that lived in the lake.

    Its hard to miss Hoan Kiem Lake as it is situated in the middle of everything. You will for sure pass by this lake for more than once.

  • Nice red bridge near Lake Hoan Kiem

    Bridge over Lake Hoan Kiem

    This bridge reminds me of the one in Nikko, Japan -- similarly graceful and beautiful. The bridge can be seen from many different vistas around the lake.

    Hoan Kiem Lake

    The pillars of the entrance to the Tortoise Pagoda in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake.

    It's nice but certainly is overrated in all the travel guides
