Hanoi, Vietnam Running Route: West Lake
Running in Hanoi presents a myriad of challenges, from chickens to scooters to pollution. After attempting a few different courses, this route on the banks of West Lake (Tay Ho) proved to be safe(r) and quite enjoyable. The route has a relatively wide sidewalk area, providing space to run around parked vehicles without darting into the road. If you are lucky, a breeze from the lake will carry away the smog a bit. We started our run at the T-intersection of Sen Ho Tay and Nhat Chieu, in front of Thung lũng hoa hồ Tây Garden Park, headed along Nhat Chieu. You can also do a Google Map search for the restaurant Santorini Vibes.
