According to local folklore, when the Golden Turtle God demanded his magic sword, an ancient emperor was once floating around the shore. Travelers are flocking to the lake today to avoid the city's hustle.The Lake of the Revived Sword marks the division between the French Quarter and the Old Quarter of Hanoi. It is also home to an endangered, huge soft-shell turtle species that gives its name to the nearby Turtle Temple. To take photos of the skyline, it's worth hanging around after dark.
