Looking for another space to take in the city by foot? A new walking street is planned to take hold in one of Ho Chi Minh City’s most charming areas: Turtle Lake.





The famed area (Hồ Con Rùa in Vietnamese) is recognizable by its towering, lotus-shaped statue surrounded by intertwining concrete walkways. By day, it’s a bustling roundabout, but by night it stands as among the most popular hangouts for both young and old in the city.





The new pedestrian zone is still in its planning stage, but it will further bolster the existing attractions of Turtle Lake. Those strolling through can expect an unmatched street food snacking experience—don’t miss the Da Lat-style Banh Trung or sweet and salty Bap Xao (sauteed corn)—as well as a unique cityscape view at both ground level and from above.





If you want to get familiar with Turtle Lake before the walking street takes hold, you can find the public square at the intersections of Vo Van Tan, Tran Cao Van, and Pham Ngoc Thach in Ward 6 of District 3.
