Join the morning ritual of Tai Chi at the shore of “Lake of the Returned Sword.”
Discovery TRVLR invites you to chase ancient ghosts in a mystical forest, enter a mystical pagoda where warriors and monks train, meet a young fashion designer who’s breaking all the rules, and be charmed by a fearless acrobat. Start the journey waking up in Hanoi, Vietnam — a city that turned 1000 years old in 2010 — and join the morning ritual of Tai Chi. Your journey begins at Hoàn Kiếm Lake or “Lake of the Returned Sword.” It is here, legend has it, that in 1428 Emperor Lê Lợi returned a magical sword to the Golden Turtle God that had helped him to fight off the Chinese invaders. See the Turtle Tower that commemorates this moment on the small island in the lake.
