[Photos] Sunset Over Hanoi’s Hồ Tây (West Lake)

Hanoi’s West Lake, one of the signature lakes of the Vietnamese capital, has been an important part of the city’s history for over a thousand years. Hanoians have long revered the Lake, inspiring several legends, some of which involve 9-tailed foxes and struggling buffalos.

With 17km in shore length, it is also one of Hanoi’s largest, surrounded by many gardens, hotels, villas, restaurants and entertainment.
