West Lake to become attractive tourist destination

Published on : Saturday, December 28, 2013

HoTay25.12The West Lake, which is dubbed as the lung of Hanoi, will be turned into an attractive cultural and spiritual tourist site.

The plan was discussed at a conference jointly held by the municipal Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Tay Ho People’s Committee and the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism on December 24.

The department and the committee have jointly drawn a list of entertainment services at the site such as rowing, diving and food, which will be submitted to the municipal People’s Committee for approval.

To realise the plan, Tay Ho district will focus on water treatment in the lake as well as developing a restaurant and hotel system around it in connection with peach and kumquat growing villages.

Over the past time, along with upgrading lakeshores, pavements, parks and benches, the district has launched electric care services around the lake, helping lure more visitors to the capital city.

The West Lake has a long history associated with the formation and development of the capital city of Thang Long-Hanoi. Rich in cultural values, the lake houses at least 21 pagodas, shrines and communal houses with many valuable artefacts.
