Although Hanoi has so many parks and lakes, Hoan Kiem Lake, which is the most significant and legendary, is the top place to visit in autumn. It can be said that Hoan Kiem Lake is a great refuge for both Vietnamese and foreigners whose days are mostly in the narrow and chaotic streets of the Old Quarter. In the morning, you can admire a bold scene simplicity and gentleness created by the people doing exercise, walking, playing chess, doing a photo shoot or even fishing. In the afternoon, vendors come to sell cheap eats and souvenirs and young students visit the lake with the hope of practicing their English with foreigners. In the evenings, the lake draws couples to visit for a romantic night out thanks to its twinkling fairy tale setting created by the colorful lights beautifully lit up.

To begin a night out, bia hoi, which is cheap and can easily be found everywhere you go, should not be a bad idea. Drinking at a bia hoi or at Beer Corner will satisfy anyone’s night plans, especially in the little bit hot weather of Hanoi in September. Situated at Ta Hien and Luong Ngoc Quyen in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, Beer Corner has become a favorite drinking spot for Vietnamese, expats and backpackers as well.

At night, you will have to mingle with the incredible locals’ and tourists’ crowd seeking for bia hoi to find a drinking spot for yourself or walk down the really narrow Ta Hien Street. With 10 glasses of beer costing only VND 80,000 – 100,000 (USD $3.5 – 4.4), this is the reason why customers can happily sit on mini plastic stools along the street for hours on end. What is more interesting than sitting among locals and other travelers, chatting and seeing the endless stream of people passing by?
