The beauty of water lily season on Yen stream

Yen (Canary) stream is located about 60 kilometres from the centre of Hanoi, also known as Yen Vĩ (Canary Tail), because of its shape like the tail of a canary.

In winter, Yến stream in the Hương (Perfume) Pagoda tourist site in Hà Nội's Mỹ Đức District becomes a charming destination for tourists with thousands of water lilies in full bloom.

Yến (Canary) stream is located about 60 kilometres from the centre of Hà Nội, also known as Yến Vĩ (Canary Tail), because of its shape like the tail of a canary.

This stream is still the only waterway to visit the Perfume Pagoda.

In spring, Yến Vĩ is crowded with boats carrying tourists to the Hương Pagoda Festival but in the winter, the atmosphere here is extremely quiet. Visitors can clearly hear the gentle sounds of boats paddling in the water.

December is considered the most ideal time for tourists to enjoy the poetic Yến stream. When coming here, visitors can sit on a boat, enjoy the wonderful space and scenery, and breathe the clear atmosphere of the mountains and forests.

Looking down from above, thousands of water lilies bloom on the stream, making this place look like a graceful silk scarf.

Like lotus flowers, water lilies bloom best in the morning, so if you want to go to Yến stream to see flowers, you have to get up early.

The best time to visit is between 7am and 9am. That is when the water lilies are in full bloom and the sun is not yet strong, so you can fully enjoy the poetic scenery here.

In the midst of the chaos of life, watching the water lilies bloom, enjoying the wonderful space and scenery, will definitely be an unforgettable experience for any visitor.
