See Huu Tiep Lake, which together create a bit odd war triumph. Small residential buildings surround the little lake where the wreckage of American aircraft emerges. In 1972, the air defence shot the aircraft, and one part of it fell in this lake. Look a bit closely around the greenish water, and you’ll notice the landing gear wheels. As the wreckage is for many years there, plants have started to grow around it.

I was lucky enough to find this place after navigating the maze-like alleyways of the Ngoc Ha neighborhood. After visiting the B-52 War Museum it would be nice to check out this small lake where the B-52 Bomber originally fell (a small piece of the it can still be seen in the middle of the lake). There are cafes surrounding the lake where you can relax after walking. There are also pagodas nearby that you can visit.
A little tougher to find but great place to walk to down all the little alleyways off the beaten path in Hanoi. Nice to see a bit of history in an untouched state. The remains of the B52 Bomber still lie in the lake from when it was shot down.
