Loving couples and lonely souls frequent this lake, marked by the grave of the legendary young girl who chose a watery suicide over living without the love of her indifferent boyfriend.

I just came here a few days ago. The lake is much smaller than others like Tuyen Lam, Xuan Huong, Suoi Vang,... There's nothing interesting here. I vas very disappointed when i got here and i'm like 'omg, is this really Lake of Sighs'.

I do not what happened but it is not a lake anymore. The whole main area is fulled with dirt and red soil, very dirty. The service is poor also, no direction, no staff. There are better lakes in the city like Tuyen Lam lake...More

It had nothing but mud and sands. I did not see a beautiful lake as I read in the description. Very disappointing and boring, don't ever come to this place for a visit

The great thing about this place is that you almost can hear the traditional vietnamese music playing in the background, and picture the fishers throwing the nets into the lake. Beautiful sights and relaxing environment in an exotic country, what else do you need?

A few pine trees on an otherwise barren slope and a tired horse to ride. It's a few kilometres out of town on the way to Nha Trang. Best keep travelling to Nha Trang.
