Called Petit Lac in the time of French Indochina, today Lake (Hô) Hoan Kiêm, Lake of the Restored Sword, it reflects the soul of the capital. The lake has always inspired artists, most recently La Grande Sophie, whose song Hanoï (in the album Nos histoires) evokes with great success the universe that revolves around this emerald green expanse, a resting place of a legendary past:
"Around the lake there's like
A world that bubbles up
In front of me a painting
And my voice hums
I will see you again. »
From Friday evening to Sunday evening, Lake Hoan Kiem becomes the centre of a vast pedestrian zone.
