Visitors to the capital city of Hanoi in March will be surprised by the vibrant colours of the leaves of 'loc vung' (Barringtonia acutangula) trees changing to red and yellow.
Unlike the other kinds of trees whose leaves change in Autumn, loc vung trees shed their leaves in Spring, making the capital more charming and poetic.
These days, the Hang Dau flower gardens are brilliant with the red and yellow colours of loc vung trees.
The area around headquarters of the Ha Noi Municipal Party Committee is mixed with bright red and yellow.
The trees “wear a colourful coat” with three major colours of green, yellow and red.

After only a few days, all the leaves of the loc vung trees changed to yellow or red…
… before falling.
