West Lake is a huge body of water with a circumference of 17km and so many nightlife venues, five-star hotels, stylish restaurants, cafes and historic places of interest that are worth your time along its shoreline.

Although one legend claims that this lake was formed when the Dragon King Lac Long Quan drowned a wicked fox spirit with nine tails in his lair, the actual history of West Lake, which is locally known as Tay Ho Lake, remains a mystery to this very day.
