Asia Vietnam

By the Hoan Kiem Lake – Hanoi, Vietnam

Hoan Kiem Lake or “Lake of the Restored Sword” is probably the most scenic spot in Hanoi (that I know of). When we went there, it was – no kidding – literally filled with people. Not in an I-can’t-breathe kind of way, but in a this-is-just-such-a-nice-place-to-stay kind. Despite such, it is still clean and picturesque.
