Hanoi vibrant in leaf changing season

Once the social distancing days due to Covid-19 pandemic ended, the pace of life in Hanoi has gradually stabilised and the streets are vibrant with colour from trees shedding their leaves.

Hanoi vibrant in leaf changing season

Every day, Phan Dinh Phung Street attracts a lot of foreign tourists, photographers and citizens who visit to take photos and walks during the most beautiful moment.

In temperate countries, autumn is the leaf changing season; however, in Hanoi, many kinds of trees shed their leaves in the early summer.

The carpet of leaves that have fallen from “sau” (dracontomelon duperreanum) and “xa cu” (nacre) trees.

Many dracontomelon duperreanum and nacre trees planted along several streets have attracted numerous foreigners to Hoan Kiem District, the diplomatic area in Ba Dinh District, and the old quarter around Hoan Kiem Lake.

The changing leaves signal the start of summer.

The pavement crossing Hoa Phong Tower beside Hoan Kiem Lake is covered in the yellow leaves of dracontomelon duperreanum trees.

Hang Khay and Trang Thi streets are full of fallen leaves.
