Hoan Kiem Lake is in the historical center of Hanoi. According to the legend, Emperor Le Loi was boating on the lake when a Golden Turtle God (Kim Qui) surfaced and asked for his magic sword, Heaven's Will. Loi concluded that Kim Qui had come to reclaim the sword that it’s master, the Dragon King (Long Vuong) had given Loi some time earlier, during his revolt against the Chinese Ming Dynasty. Loi renamed the lake to commemorate this event. He renamed the lake from Luc Thuy (Green Water") to Hoan Kiem Lake (Lake of the Restored Sword). The Turtle Tower (Thap Rua) standing on a small island near the centre of lake is linked to the legend.

Crystal and Harvey treated our family including 2 tertiary students to a wonderful, informative day out. They both had a fabulous knowledge of history and Harvey's charisma and Crystal's professionalism made for a sensational day.


We waited for our tour guide at the lobby of our hotel last May 10, 2019 at 8:30 AM but he/she didn't show up. We called the local tour operator, AZ Local Trip, and was told that the tour guide wasn't available that morning and offered that the tour be rescheduled the following day. We accepted and waited for the tour guide at the hotel lobby on May 11, 2019 at 2:30 PM but again he/she didn't show up. Viator, please return our payment.
