Tuyen Lam Lake, Vietnam

A family made a living fishing from the Tuyen Lake


Tuyen Lam Lake (Hồ Tuyền Lâm), 5km south of town on highway 20. Its clean green waters flow from the beautiful Tia Spring and from the Da Tam River, which flows down from Voi mountain. Its waters stretch over an immense 350 hectares and because of its various sources, Tuyen Lam is known as the lake where rivers, springs and forests meet. The lake was built in the 80s. It is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in town.

There were a few families making a living fishing on the lake. They stayed on floating houses on the lake. Lift nets were used for fishing around the lake.

I was there during the Crossing Bridges 8 in Vietnam in November 2011. It is a beautiful place for sunset photos.
