    Worth a visit, especially at the weekend
    The lake is a nice retreat from the general hustle and bustle of the traffic in Hanoi. It’s a lovely area to have a walk and watch the people doing their exercise. We went for several walks in this area, including when the streets were shut off to the traffic at the weekend. It’s very popular with the local people and tourists alike. Well worth a visit. We were very popular with some of the younger generation who were practising their language skills and were so excited to talk to us.

    Good try
    I enjoyed meeting lot of young and friendly people there. Food is good. Different kind of music though sometimes it's a bit noisy. Ice-cream and coffee shops are worth to try.

    Weekend the area by the lake comes live.
    It had been a few years since our last visit to Hoan Kiem Lake and fortunately for us it was a Saturday afternoon and we were able to spend 2 hours there while waiting for our transport to Ba Be Lake. The streets around the lake are closed at the weekends and there were plenty of activities including a market with food stalls and many other stalls t the north end of the lake. Children were playing games and at the south end of the lake children were riding bikes and other contraptions.

    Walking Street & Weekend Night Market
    Walking Street is every weekend from Fri evening to late Sunday Night. Streets are blocked off for pedestrians, from vehicle traffic for the whole weekend, including daytime. There is also a weekend Night Market. And lots of street food.

    Nice place to visit
    It is a nice place to walk around, especially at the weekend. There are walking streets, supermarkets, and restaurants here. You should try lemon ice cream here. One of my friend said that, if you haven't tried lemon ice cream, it's like you haven't been to Hoan Kiem lake🤣.

    A Walking Paradise!!
    Hoan Kiem Lake is the famous tourist attraction. The aesthetic thing I noticed that, in weekends, these area will be restricted for vehicles and all peoples including tourists can walk freely through this roads. The roads are filled with lots of food counters, shopping kiosks and entertainment. The native peoples of Hanoi conducted an event like a festival in weekends, lots of dances and songs. A true paradise!! For me, Its a must visit place!

    Hoan Kiem Lake: A Tranquil Oasis Amidst Hanoi's Bustling Rhythm
    The moment I approached the lake, I was captivated by its tranquil waters, framed by lush greenery. Strolling along the promenades that encircle the lake, I felt a sense of calm wash over me. The peaceful ambiance was a welcome escape from the vibrant chaos of the surrounding streets.

    Experience the walking street around Hoan Kiem Lake
    The walking street around Hoan Kiem Lake is one of my favorite places in Hanoi. This walking street is clean and has many beautiful cafes and small shops. What I like most is that you can sit on the side of the road, enjoy a cup of coffee and observe life going on around you.

    Liveliness and relaxation by the lakeside
    I experienced a relaxing and fun space on the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake. Whether you come in the morning to join the locals in exercising or in the evening to enjoy street food, this walking street is always full of life. Sparking lanterns, soft music, and a bustling atmosphere create an extremely memorable experience.

Love the vibe - the sights, sounds, smells, chaos by the lake. Enjoyed the trees too & lots of beautiful facades. Worth a visit.

Great location
Go on a Friday / weekend - all the streets are pedestrian from a Friday evening
They have roadside Zumba classes
It is clearly a well loved location for Hanoi
