  Rising Sun Bridge, Hanoi
by windsorgirl

Crossing over this beautiful, bright red bridge allows access to Ngoc Sun Temple which is located on a small island at the north end of Hoan Kiem Lake. The bridge was built in 1885.

You should stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake in the early morning before the hawkers are out in full force. You will notice calm reflections on the water and many locals practicing Tai Chi.

Address: Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
