From Hoan Kiem to Bay Mau lake

The Hanoi people in particular and the Vietnamese people in general all know Hoan Kiem Lake, also known as Sword Lake. This is not only the most beautiful and airy space in the capital but also the center of the city. When Hanoi has a big event, Hoan Kiem Lake is often chosen as the organizing venue.

Hoan Kiem Lake is 12 hectares wide, formerly known as Luc Thuy Lake (because the water is green all year round), Thuy Quan Lake (because it was once used for training army), Ta Vong, and Huu Vong lakes. The name Hoan Kiem appeared in the early 15th century associated with the legend of King Le Loi returning the treasure sword to the magic turtle living in the lake.

Speaking of ponds, people often think of village ponds in rural and suburban areas. But even at Ba Gia pagoda in Phu Thuong Ward, Tay Ho district, there is also a large pond.

Ba Gia Pagoda is an architectural work dating back more than 1,000 years. Visitors coming here will feel that Ba Gia Pagoda is even more deserted than Ba ​​Danh pagoda. Some documents say that the pagoda is located in Ba Gia village, so it is called Ba Gia pagoda.

In Hanoi, there is a "Korean Wharf", which is a road along the West Lake with a length of over 1 km. This place is spacious with an airy and fresh atmosphere thanks to the vast lake. "Korean Wharf" is a meeting place for young couples to confide and date. This romantic scene looks like a scene from some Korean movies, so young people named it "Korean wharf". From this place, everyone can enjoy the majestic yet romantic West Lake.

Another West Lake road, lying from the intersection of lane 612 Lac Long Quan to the intersection of Au Co street, next to Phan Chu Trinh High School, 900 m long, is named Trinh Cong Son street by the People's Committee of Hanoi since July 2015. This place has just become a walking city since May.

Dreamy Yen Stream, peaceful Thay pagoda pond

Yen Stream is located in the scenic relic of Huong Pagoda in Huong Son commune, My Duc district, Hanoi. From the center of the capital, it takes about two hours to get to this place.

The stream flowing into the Day River, which also bears the name Yen Vi, for its shape resembles the wide-spread tail of a bird nest. Yen Stream is about 4 km long. The stream takes visitors from Duc wharf to Huong Son. Because this is the only waterway to get to the Huong pagoda, boats bustle up and down the stream bed in every Huong pagoda festival.
