What you'll do

Based on the increasingly popular concept of "Running Your Holiday", whereby sightseeing and jogging are combined in a single activity, I offer guided running tours around Hanoi, one of the Vietnam's most famous historic and cultural cities. With regular scheduled running tours and customised running tours available, RunningYourHoliday.com offers a unique sightseeing experience to runners of all abilities. Exploring Hanoi in a truly unique and healthy way by jogging through the streets of the city with me. Starting from the 2 Dragons Symbol in the West Lake, Northern side of Hanoi, you will be taken to run/jog along the lake and possible to finish one full lake with the length of approximately 15km. After the workout session, you will be taken to have a full Vietnamese meal with either Vietnamese Beef/Chicken Rice Noodle (Phở), or Grill Pork Rice Noodle (Bún Chả), or Goose Rice Noodle (Bún Ngan), or Snail Rice Noodle (Bún Ốc).

With a shore length of 17 km (about 10.6 miles) and 500 hectare (about 5 km2) in area, this is the largest lake of the capital and a popular place for recreation with many surrounding gardens, hotels and villas.
