Vietnamese people tend to be conservative when it comes to public displays of affection. You’ll almost never see a couple openly kissing, but there are certain romantic spots around Hanoi where you’ll see some hand-holding and heads leaned on shoulders — places where they watch sunsets and talk about the future. There’s something about these places that brings out the hidden romantic in people. Hanoi has many beautiful locations, but here are the places where romance blooms.
Hoan Kiem Lake
We’ll start with the easiest one. Hoan Kiem Lake is the focal point of Hanoi. It’s a popular spot for couples to sit and chat while they gaze at the calm waters where giant turtles once brought luck to the capital. You can always see newlyweds posing around the lake, taking pictures of their special day. The Turtle Tower out in the middle of the water is in the background of countless Vietnamese wedding photos. If you’re thinking about proposing to your special someone, the famous red bridge over to the Ngoc Son Temple is a popular spot.
Long Bien Bridge
Every night, couples ride their motorbikes to the famous Long Bien Bridge to spend precious time with each other after long days of study and work. It’s a cost-effective romantic retreat, but keep an eye out for the traffic cruising by. Vietnamese commuters have no patience for idle lovers.
The Gourmet Corner Restaurant
There are many romantic restaurants in Hanoi, but here’s one we’re sure you’ll love. The Gourmet Corner Restaurant is located on the top floor of the Elegance Diamond Hotel, and it has some of the best views of Hanoi. You can see Hoan Kiem Lake, the Old Quarter, and most of downtown.
