Fitness in Hanoi

Walking around the lakes in Hanoi is an amazing experience, it’s so full of life. People are eating, drinking, walking, running and doing all kinds of exercises. Fitness is big business around the lakes in Hanoi.

I live around Truc Bach lake so i walked about 30 seconds from my home, sat down on a wobbly plastic chair at one of the local cafes lining up around the lakefront and ordered a fresh lemon juice.

One hour and two lemon juice later i had taken 86 images on people doing all kinds of exercises, plus a cock fight going on just a couple of feet from my wobbly plastic chair.

I’ll get back to the cock fight in a later post so in this post I’ll focus on fitness in Hanoi.

The first image is of a guy stretching while he looks out over Truch Bach.

And finally an image of some guys trying to improve their fitness by doing push-ups on a bar.

In the next few days I’ll come back to the cock fight that pretty much took place in my knees. Pretty dramatic actually.
