Hoa Bình Dam, Hanoi: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About Hoa Bình Dam

Built on the Black river, Hoa Běnh Dam is one of the remarkable Hanoi places to visit. This dam is Vietnam’s largest hydroelectric dam that generates a lot of power by combining eight turbines of 240 MW capacity totaling to 1920 MW of installed capacity. When you visit the dam you will find a 400 ton giant statue of Ho Chi Minh on the neighboring hill of Tuong.

Legend has it that when the Vietnamese Leader was crossing the Red river in a boat during Vietnam’s independence struggle against America, he faced many challenges. Eventually Ho chi Minh got so frustrated with the challenges that he manifested a reunification of the South and North by building a dam to calm the ferocious river.
