17km Walk Around West Lake in Ha Noi & Trấn Quốc Pagoda | LIFE IN VIETNAM

I woke up one morning and said to myself “Hey, I’m going to walk 17km around today.” And I did it. This is a little visual tour of some of the sights I was able to take in from my exploration walk around the entire perimeter of West Lake (Hồ Tây in Vietnamese) the largest body of water in Ha Noi.

Along the way, a major highlight was the Trấn Quốc Pagoda, which was built in the 6th century AD. It’s a major historic and cultural relic for Buddhists and Vietnam, and has been rightfully designated so

Across the Thanh Nien road in front of the pagoda is a smaller lake called Trúc Bạch Lake, which is famous for being the crash landing and capture site of John McCain in 1967. He was then held as a Prisoner Of War for 5 and a half years.

There were many other interesting things along the way around the lake’s edge. You’ll have to watch the whole video to see. ^^

If you’re thinking about doing this walk yourself, it’s very easy. You just need a pair of good walking shoes, and water to stay hydrated. There are plenty of mini-marts, street vendors, cafes, restaurants, bars, and other places along the way in case you become hungry or thirsty.

  1. Would you walk 17km around the lake if you could? What's the furthest you've walked in a single day? I used to walk for 20km+ in a day frequently back in Seoul, Korea.

    You can take a walk around Hoan Kiem Lake at 6am, lots of people exercising.

  12. As I guessed, the army of bats is there because of that shitton of mosquitos. Bats tend to eat anything that flies, including mosquitos so there you go, those bats there where probably feasting on all these damn little pests lol.

    Hi Cory, nice video! My boyfriend and I also enjoyed a walk around Westlake back in February. It took us a whole day but we stopped a lot of times to eat, drink and visit the themepark 😉😎

    I've always been told that the lake is really polluted and that it smell real bad. But looking at the video it doesn't look so bad. Does it smell?
