Tây Hồ (West Lake) is an urban district (quận) located on the north side of central Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam. The district wraps around the West Lake (hồ Tây), one of the largest natural lakes of Vietnam. It is also Hanoi's least populated district.
Thanks to its close proximity to central Hanoi and scenery of the West Lake, Tay Ho is a high-end residential area, housing a large population of expatriates. Many streets in the district are named after renowned Vietnamese poets, artists and music composers, such as Xuân Diệu, Tô Ngọc Vân, Trịnh Công Sơn, Nguyễn Đình Thi and Đặng Thai Mai.
Following decree 69/CE set fourth by the Socialist Republic of Vietnam government, Tây Hồ was officially recognized as a district on October 28, 1995. The district was, and is, still considered to be a center of entertainment, tourism, and natural conservation of Hanoi.
