The city’s largest lake, known as both Ho Tay and West Lake, is 15km in circumference and ringed by upmarket suburbs, including the predominantly expat Tay Ho district. On the south side, along Ð Thuy Khue, are seafood restaurants, and to the east, the Xuan Dieu strip is lined with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and luxury hotels. A pathway circles the lake, making for a great bicycle ride.
1 thing hanois different than saigon is the winds from lakes like this-bring few strange feelings, perhaps nolstagia. Must, must discover secret, flower full but people free, corners of this big guy;)
