Vivid jade Hoa Binh Lake from lakeside views

NDO – Let’s join a boat tour along more than 200km long inside Hoa Binh Lake, visitors can be conquered by the beauty of a popular tourist destination dubbed the “Ha Long Bay on land.”


When it comes to Hoa Binh province tourism, normally everyone thinks of the Hoa Binh Hydropower Plant and the Hoa Binh Lake – the plant’s reservoir which is a part of the Da River. The most familiar image of the lake is viewed from the plant’s main dam in Hoa Binh City. However, it would be a completely different experience when taking on a boat trip inside the lake to enjoy its stunning beauty along over 200km, with distinct views of the jade reservoir from the beautiful lakeside villages.

Here are the stunning photos on the lake’s beauty captured through the lens of Nhan Dan Online reporter Tuyet Loan:
