Northwest of the old city, in a more peaceful and laid back setting, are the West lake and Truc Bach lakes. In both lakes there are boats for rent. Near West lake is the beautiful Quan Tanh temple, originally built in the 11th century to honour Huyen Thien Tran, a genie. The temple features a richly decorated interior and decorated outer walls.
