Hoan Kiem Street

Hoan Kiem Street is the short street being only 52 metres long, connecting Dinh Tien Hoang and Cau Go Streets. Cycling around Hoan Kiem lake in the early morning is the great way to discover Hanoi.

Few people know of Hanoi’s shortest street, that back in the days when the city was actually a collection of villages, Hoan Kiem Street was part of Ta Vong Village, Huu Tuc Ward, Tho Xuong District.

Regardless of its size, the street has contributed to the beauty and soul of Hoan Kiem Lake . Much of the charismatic old architecture has been maintained on this boulevard that was home to some of Hanoi ’s lower middle class residents.

Hoan Kiem Lake Street clearly reflects the culture of soon to be “Thousand-year-old Hanoi ”.
