It overlooks the water and it is a really nice place to walk around. A bit far from the old quarter but worth the tuc-tuc ride.

Good place to start a walking tour of Hanoi as its just a short stroll down to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. It is a large Temple and has the second largest bronze statue in Vietnam.
