Do you want to see the morning activities of Hanoi people in the early morning? Taking a bike tour around the lakes in Hanoi is the best way. On this half day, we will see 02 different lakes including Hoan Kiem Lake and West Lake. Hanoi is a city full of character – and there’s no better time to experience it than in the early morning. As dawn breaks, be prepared to get swept up in the buzz of activities during the morning rush hours. Catch a glimpse of Hanoi’s residents performing their morning exercise routines on the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake and, perhaps, join a tai chi class to stretch your tired limbs.

Ho Hoan Kiem

(or Lake of the Restored Sword) was once part of the Red river (song Hong). Throughout thousands of years of geographical changes, the lake moved eastward to its present position kilometers from the river.

Before the famous historical legend of King Le Loi here, Hoan Kiem Lake used to be called Luc Thuy Lake (or Green Water Lake) since the water was green all the year round. As dawn breaks, be prepared to get swept up in the buzz of activities during the morning rush hours. Catch a glimpse of Hanoi’s residents performing their morning exercise routines on the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake and, perhaps, join a tai chi class to stretch your tired limbs.

Ho Tay

Or named West Lake: This lake is the largest in Hanoi with a shore length of around 17km (10.6 miles) and is a popular place for recreation with many surrounding gardens, hotels and villas. One legend suggests that the lake was shaped after a battle between Lac Long Quan and a night-tail fox spirit, which is why the lake was once called “Fox Corpse Swamp”.

The lake is bordered with many significant places in history of Hanoi such as Tran Quoc Pagoda, the oldest pagoda in Vietnam, built in 6th century and located on a small island in the middle of the lake, plus Quan Thanh Temple, one of the Four Sacred Temples of ancient Hanoi.
