Walked here from War museum for a look, lots of tourists taking photo shoot on the steps with the flowers all blooming. Has some seating around the "lake" part but most of it is in the sum and it was scorching hot. There are loads of street food vendors around and some great banh mi carts. Worth a look, the water was pretty gross and grimy. Lots of cafes around too.

Busy traffic during Saturday afternoon but no tourist, roundabout restaurants empty comparing few years back. I do find it super attracting with new architecture

Enjoyed meeting friends at turtle lake in the evening. A very busy tragic circle with water in the center. Many young people gather here at night to frequent the many restaurants, bars and coffee shops there and hang out around the water. Very lively crowd most nights. Lots of fun.

We walked past Turtle lake during the day on or way from the Novotel to the "Post Office" It looked a bit neglected and no one was around, however it is transformed at night, hundreds of people (assumed local Vietnamese) gather around, the atmosphere is buzzing, there are loads of street food vendors selling all kinds of food, cooked while you wait. We were not brave enough to try the food, but ever one else seem to be enjoying what was on offer. Worth visiting even if just to walk through and take in the sights, sounds and smells.

Passed through here a few times on our trip to Saigon. It’s really cool at night and it seems to be a place where a lot of the Vietnamese people hang out. There’s street vendors dotted about and it’s a cool place to be

Came here on a solo trip for lunch at a local cafe but lake seems to have dried up.

Công cafe is apparently famous for its coconut milk coffee. Don't be mistaken with
its 'more expensive cousin with a similar name', Công is actually accessible via an inner lane, then you have to take a flight of stairs up 2 floors. It's quite a hipster cafe

come here for dinner.
after 7pm.
too early and the food vendors would not have set up their stalls.

most of the stalls sell similar food.
so just pick a nice spot and order from the vendor in front of you
