Newly built modern real estate and transportation projects in Hanoi still do not overshadow the beauty of old buildings and monuments. The capital always carries in itself other values.
Familiar features in the heart of Hanoi
One of the architectural highlights in Hoan Kiem Lake is The Huc Bridge with its lipstick color as a soft silk strip crossing the characteristic blue water, creating a harmonious and eye-catching beauty. Right near The Huc Bridge is Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square. From a simple clock pole, for many years this place has become a sparkling fountain at the crossroads of Le Thai To, Hang Dao, Hang Gai, Dinh Tien Hoang, Cau Go. Ha Thanh people are used to calling it “Ho Lake Fountain”. In autumn, fallen yellow leaves carpet the sidewalks everywhere, creating a familiar feature in the heart of Hanoi.
