The Hang Luoc flower market is a long-standing famous flower market in Hanoi. Here, customers can not only buy flowers and ornamental trees but also antiques and second-hand items, making it a popular address among Hanoians during Tet.
The market only convenes once a year, for a week or two weeks before Tet. In addition to organising the Tet flower market, Hoan Kiem District has organised cultural and art activities in bridge arches along the Phung Hung mural street every year since 2018 to bring the Tet atmosphere to the people.
The 2019 Hang Luoc flower market is open until January 24 (the last day of the last month of the 2019 lunar year).
