  • Are not botanical gardens, but public gardens with few trees a little older, a pond, a cage with a lone Peacock and another reeking with half monkey mangy (poor!). Really sad. Perhaps, in the summer, may offer some relief to weary tourists.

  • Lovely park with a man-made lake right in the middle. Perfect place to jog/run/workout or just sit on one of the many stone benches to read a book. 2k VND to enter. Also contains a bunch of Pokestops.
  • I didn't plan to visit this but as I passed by it, I decided for a quick visit. The way I took it, it's a less-maintained place. It should be better than just this.
  • A good place for a walk, there are some big, old trees; not many places like this in Hanoi nowadays. There're also some couples were taking wedding photography, cool.
  • Good place. Fresh air.
  • Very nice, many old trees. People usually go to do exercises in the morning
