Many areas of the West Lake are being covered with rubbish left after floating restaurants were removed.

From February 23, Tay Ho District authorities began dismantling floating restaurants on the West Lake following instructions from Hanoi People’s Committee. The removal is required to be finished before March 10.

However sections of the lake along Thanh Nien and Nguyen Dinh Thi streets are full of bad-smelling rubbish. The rubbish contains both debris from dismantled floating restaurants and household wastes from surrounding areas which were previously hidden by wharves and floating restaurants.
