Hoàn Kiếm Lake on a carfree Sunday

There are quite a few lakes in Hanoi city. Hoàn Kiếm Lake is the nearest one to the old town, it got some interesting monuments to attract both locals and tourists to visit. I did prefer West Lake a bit more, because it’s much calmer and bigger as well, thus better to relax.

I went to Hoàn Kiếm Lake on a car-free Sunday. Vietnamese traffic is crazy so carfree is perfect for me.

Some interesting monumens and temple around the lake.

Photoshooting couple, quite a lot of them near the lake and they can pose well.

Nice spot for people watching indeed!

School girls posing for photos, must be some kind of school trip I guess?

There was a stage but nobody was singing, just playing music.
