Breathtaking West Lake in summer bloom

Early summer scenes around the West Lake are adorned with the blossoms of Lagerstroemia, Cassia fistula, Phoenix, Lotus, and others, which are blooming one after the other.

Located to the northwest of the city center, Ho Tay or West Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Hanoi. When summer knocks at the door, the area around the lake becomes magnificent with summer flowers in bright yellow, glowing red, pink, purple and white colors.

People in Hanoi still love to stroll around West Lake, mesmerized by the sparkling flowers, even in the midst of the hot and bright weather.
